The attention of Barr George Ariolu, the Chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area has been drawn to the existence of a facebook account purportedly being owned and managed by unscrupulous mind(s) who are going about defrauding unsuspecting members of the public through their fraudulent activities.
The Chairman wishes to inform unsuspecting public to steer clear of this fraudster(s) as he will not carry out any business transactions online, either for himself or the Council.
While all necessary and appropriate steps are being taken to ensure not only the deactivation of this and any other social media handle which investigations might reveal, but also the discovery and prosecution of the criminal elements behind it, we urge members of the public to be circumspect when having dealings with all social media accounts purportedly being used for unlawful extortion of the public.
At the moment, we can report that the Chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area has only one official facebook page which can be accessed through the link below https://www.facebook.com/BarrGeorgeTAriolu.
Consequent upon the above, members of the public are forthwith advised to shun any further dealings or transactions with this fraudster(s) disguising as Barr George Ariolu.
By this, we encourage the general public to exhaust all measures available to report any fraudulent account until it is brought down.
