Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, has drawn the attention of members of the public, especially stakeholders in the global oil and
gas industry, to the existence of a spurious facebook account
purportedly belonging to its newly appointed group managing director, Mr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu.
A statement signed by group general manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Mr. Ohi Alegbe, stated that the said facebook account which bears the photograph and name of the GMD is the creation of some nondescript internet fraudsters bent on
exploiting the personae and the office of the new GMD to defraud unsuspecting members of the public.
He said that the scammers had been using the fake FB page to send all manners of scam letters and phantom contract deals cum cash solicitations to some highly placed contacts within and outside the oil and gas industry.
According to him, “While we explore all options to arrest this menace, we wish to advise members of the public to disregard any such FB page purportedly belonging to the GMD of NNPC as he does not operate any Facebook account.”
