It was also brought to our notice that these hackers opened 11 different accounts of Facebook in Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa’s name and was using the various accounts to dupe their unsuspecting and innocent Nigerians.

For the avoidance of doubts, some of the fake accounts says Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa of the House of Senate, National Assembly.

Another one says: she is of Nigerian House of Representatives, She is `Special assistance’ to President Muhammadu Buhari, she is of Maryland Comprehensive Secondary school, Aso Villa Abuja, Nigeria with her various pictures adorning all the pages with minimum of 7,025 likes to 62,176 likes.

All of these are fake and not from Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa. The Hon. Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora is always available and members of the public can reach her on: ssa@diaspora.gov.ng on issues pertaining to her office.

It must be noted that while Hon. Dabiri-Erewa has reported severally to Facebook, fake accounts keep popping up in her name again, urging Facebook to look into such easy method of cloning peoples’ identity.
