The Presidency has signaled members of the public to a false Facebook account that was opened by some impersonators using the name of the President’s daughter, Zahra Buhari.
The president’s media adviser, Femi Adesina said the cloned account was the work of mischief makers, who have taken the antics against the First Family into another level entirely.
“Merchants of mischief have taken their antics against the first family further by creating a fake Facebook account in the name of Zahra Buhari, President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter.
The fake account, conspicuously different from the authentic one, was used to post a message on April 17, 2018, at 9.07 a.m.
“A picture of President Buhari, with snowflakes all over him, and being welcomed to a foreign country was used, alongside this message:
“Children of God, here is a 75 years old man walking in the snow without cardigan just to rescue the battered economic status of Nigeria and some of you senseless people feel he travels too much as if he travels for partying or merrymaking.
“God bless Nigeria. Please share…”
“The Presidency hereby repudiates the Facebook account, as it does not belong to Zahra. Members of the public are urged to be wary and see through the intentions of those behind the fakery. They seek to attract odium to the first family, and also do not mean well for our country.” he said.
Zahra Buhari walked down the aisle last year to Muhammed Indimi.
In a similar incident that occurred earlier this year, a young man by name the Emir of Kano was detained after frauding some people of their money.
The man who is very active on all social media platforms claimed to be the Emir Sanusi of Kano on his Instagram with 262,000 followers uses the verified Instagram page to dupe members of the public.
Unfortunately for him, he was detained eventually and sentenced to 36 months in Prison after he was found guilty of disguising himself as the Emir of Kano.
