The presidency says Yusuf, son of President Muhammadu Buhari, is being impersonated on various social media platforms.
Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman, said on Wednesday that Yusuf does not have any social media account.
Adesina pointed out a fake Instagram account bearing Yusuf’s name, saying it has thousands of followers, however, TheCable found that the account mentioned, @ymbuhari, has no post.
“The most recent is an Instagram account @ymbuhari, which has attracted thousands of followers, and which has been used to express opinions in Yusuf’s name without his knowledge,” Adesina said in a statement.
“This is to inform the general public that Yusuf Muhammadu Buhari is not on any social media platform.
“The public is therefore, advised to disregard such handles and pages, while those perpetrating the illegality are advised to stop forthwith, as it amounts to impersonation.
“The same advice goes to those running other pages and handles impersonating other members of the family of the president.”
Yusuf Buhari returned from medical treatment abroad in March after being involved in a motorbike accident in Abuja.
