Former governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola has alerted the public on the activities of hackers who compromised his twitter account, @tundefashola and made posts in strange a language.
A statement signed by his media aide, Hakeem Bello, said followers of the former governor on twitter called early on Saturday morning to report the development which suggests it took place Friday night.
Not long ago, Mr. Fashola denied links with a certain face book account with his photograph but had comments considered a scam to defraud innocent people.
The statement said the conmen have, through Facebook, been urging unsuspecting people to apply for some government facilities or utilities meant to benefit the public but to which some agencies of government have been given the responsibility to manage.
“One of such information titled, “Disbursement of Subsidy Dividend (SURE-P)” purported to have been issued by the former Governor is informing “Citizens that Subsidy proceed is available for Agro and commercial business”, and asking them to “Apply for soft loan with no collateral, zero percent interest rate and flexible terms”.
Mr. Fashola urged the people to report to the law enforcement agencies, any suspicious posts and comments in order to get those involved to face the wrath of the law.
