Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State on Monday raised the alarm that fraudsters are using his names to defraud job seekers in the state.

The governor warned those applying for employment in the state civil service or contracts to be wary of such dubious characters.

El-Rufai said this through his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Samuel Aruwan, while addressing journalists at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House, Kaduna, adding that security agencies were on the trail of the fraudsters.

According to him, the fraudsters specialised in duping persons under the guise of securing government appointments and contracts in the state for them.

He cautioned unsuspecting members of the public, especially those applying for jobs or contracts in the state against the nefarious acts so as not to fall victim.

El-Rufai added, “Our attention has been drawn to criminal activities of fraudsters duping members of the public purportedly under the guise of securing government appointments, employment and contracts in the state and beyond.

“The fraudsters have been dropping a Diamond Bank account number, 0061680758, with the name Martin Anderson. There is also one Engr Bello, claiming to be a Manager in NNPC with telephone number 08133613031, which he circulates via a fake Facebook account.

“The fraudsters, who are cheating and collecting resumes and Curriculum Vitae of ambitious persons, have no mandate of the governor or Kaduna State Government but are criminals and the general public should take note.

“The security agencies have been alerted and presently trailing them for appropriate action and prosecution. The members of the public are hereby reminded to cease patronising criminals but to report them to the nearest security agencies.”
