Some fraudsters have opened social media accounts for ex-JAMB registrar, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, to perpetrate fraud.
Ojerinde, who raised the alarm in a statement on Sunday, said the fraudsters opened the social media accounts, including Facebook, in his name to defraud unsuspecting members of the public.
He explained that the fraudsters used the accounts to demand money from people for non-existing jobs in federal agencies, adding that they had been perpetrating the fraud for months.
He said, “Some unscrupulous elements have been using my name on social media, especially Facebook, to swindle unsuspecting members of the public.
“The criminals, who opened social media accounts in my name, demanding money for non-existing jobs in federal agencies, loan facilities and other fraudulent promises, have been perpetrating the act for months until it was brought to my notice a few days ago.
“I hereby inform members of the public that I neither operate any account on Facebook nor have I sent anyone to do so in my name.”
