The Department of State Security Services (DSS) has arrested a fraudster impersonating the Accountant General of the Federation, Mr. Idris Ahmed.
A statement from the Office of the AGF signed by Ifeanyi Okereke for the Deputy Director, Press and Public Relations, said “some unscrupulous elements have created social media accounts and parading themselves on the platforms as the Accountant-General of the Federation (AGF).”
By creating these social media accounts, the OAGF said the scammers “are and may be defrauding unsuspecting members of the public.”
The OAGF, according to the statement, reported the nefarious activities of the scammers to the Department of State Services (DSS) which resulted in the arrest of one IZUAGIE MOHAMMED by security operatives in Benin City, Edo State on August 24 for impersonating the AGF.
“Mohammed, using a bogus facebook account where he poses as the Accountant-General of Nigeria, had already defrauded some unwary members of the public, by promising to help them facilitate access to the Central Bank Empowerment Loans, among other dubious claims,” the statement said.
