Special Adviser to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has asked Nigerians to be wary of criminals impersonating president Buhari’s son Yusuf, online as HE, Yusuf is not on any social media platform.
In a statement released today, Adesina said a fake Instagram account bearing Yusuf’s name, with thousands of followers is being run on by an impersonator..
“The most recent is an Instagram account @ymbuhari, which has attracted thousands of followers, and which has been used to express opinions in Yusuf’s name without his knowledge. This is to inform the general public that Yusuf Muhammadu Buhari is not on any social media platform. The public is therefore, advised to disregard such handles and pages, while those perpetrating the illegality are advised to stop forthwith, as it amounts to impersonation. The same advice goes to those running other pages and handles impersonating other members of the family of the president.” the statement read
