Fraud alert: EVC of NCC has no LinkedIn account, beware! - ITREALMS
NCC in a press statement endorsed by the Director, Public Affairs, Reuben Muoka and made available to 
ITREALMS, said the commission wishes to draw public attention to a fraudulent LinkedIn account impersonating the person, and office of the Executive Vice Chairman (EVC), Prof. Danbatta.

He informed 
ITREALMS that the account was obviously created by some unscrupulous and criminal elements with a view to defrauding unsuspecting members of the public and users of social media who may think that such an account belongs to the EVC of NCC.

"For the avoidance of doubt, the EVC/CEO of NCC, Prof. Umar Garba Danbatta, has no LinkedIn Account. Therefore, any such account found on social media or any other platform, purporting to belong to the EVC of NCC, is fake!" he declared.

In addition, NCC said its working with appropriate security agencies to investigate the source of this fraudulent act with a view to nipping it to the bud.

The Commission, therefore urged members of the public, and esteemed stakeholders to be cautious, and vigilant, while on social media platforms, or in the cyberspace as many of these fraudulent individuals and groups abound, looking for unsuspecting users to defraud.

The Commission has a presence on the Internet with the official website (www.ncc.gov.ng), and key social media platforms.

"All information about our activities, programmes and reports are verifiable on our website and on our verified social media handles," DPA Muoka said.

Further, he said, that NCC is encouraging everyone to follow their official social media accounts for credible updates and announcements.

Stressing that members of the public are advised to be carefully guided when accessing or using information from social media.
