Nasir El-Rufai, Kaduna state governor, says fraudsters are using his name to dupe job seekers and contract seekers. He named the fraudster as one Engineer Bello, who claims to be a manager at the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, and directing job seekers to pay into a bank account. “Our attention has been drawn to criminal activities of fraudsters duping members of the public purportedly under the guise of securing government appointments, employment and contracts in the state and beyond. “The fraudsters have been dropping a Diamond Bank account number, 0061680758, with the name Martin Anderson. There is also one Engr Bello, claiming to be a Manager in NNPC with telephone number 08133613031, which he circulates via a fake Facebook account", the governor stated.
“The fraudsters, who are cheating and collecting resumes and Curriculum Vitae of ambitious persons, have no mandate of the governor or Kaduna State Government but are criminals and the general public should take note.
“The security agencies have been alerted and presently trailing them for appropriate action and prosecution. The members of the public are hereby reminded to cease patronising criminals but to report them to the nearest security agencies.”
