The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has cautioned Nigerians against dealing with a Facebook user parading himself as Ola Olukoyede, chairman of the anti-graft agency.

Dele Oyewale, EFCC head of media and publicity, in a statement on Wednesday, said the impersonator has been advertising a telephone line claiming to be Olukoyede’s “private line”.

He urged the public to be wary of the antics of the impostor, adding that efforts are ongoing to bring him to book.

“An impersonator parading himself as the Executive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mr. Ola Olukoyede is on Facebook,” the statement reads.

“The fake Olukoyede has also been advertising a phony telephone line, 08028189925 as the “private line” of the EFCC’s boss.

“The public is enjoined to be wary of the antics of the impersonator, while efforts are being made to bring him to book.”

The development comes hours after the EFCC alerted Nigerians to how fraudsters are swapping automated teller machine (ATM) cards of innocent people.
