The Management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC has  drawn the attention of members of the public especially stakeholders in the global oil and gas industry to the existence of a spurious facebook account  purportedly belonging to its newly appointed Group Managing Director, Dr. Emmanuel Kachikwu.

The NNPC noted that the said facebook account which bears the photograph and name of the GMD is the creation of some nondescript internet fraudsters bent on exploiting the personae and the office of the new GMD to defraud unsuspecting members of the public.

According to the NNPC, the scammers have been using the fake facebook page to send all manners of scam letters and phantom contract deals cum cash solicitations to some highly placed contacts within and outside the oil and gas industry.

“While we explore all options to arrest this menace, we wish to advise members of the public to disregard any such FB page purportedly belonging to the GMD of NNPC as he does not operate any facebook account,” the corporation said.
