Fraudsters hack Abati’s email

Fraudsters hack Abati’s email

Unknown fraudsters on Friday hacked the email of Dr. Reuben Abati, special adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on media and publicity, releasing a mail supposedly indicating that the president has exposed the sponsors of Boko Haram.

Denying that a mail of such nature was issued from the presidency, Abati condemned the act, saying those behind the act had the intention to deliberately mislead the public.

“All media organisations and persons on my mailing list should kindly disregard the press release purportedly issued by me earlier today titled: PRESIDENT JONATHAN REVEALS LOCATION OF CHIBOK GIRLS AND EXPOSES BOKO HARAM MASTERMINDS,” he said.

“No such press release was written or circulated by me. It is clearly the work of fraudsters who have hacked into my email account in an odious attempt to mislead the public at the expense of the credibility of the Jonathan administration.


“We totally condemn this criminal resort to political dirty tricks, which seeks to cynically play on national concern and emotions about the Boko Haram insurgency and fate of the abducted Chibok girls.

“Aspects of the fraudulent press release, such as its incoherence and invitation to click on a link, would have alerted discerning persons who are conversant with the style and format of my press statements to the possibility of skulduggery.

“I find it necessary, however, to issue this disclaimer for the benefit of the unwary.”
