Authorities of Delta State Police Command, Asaba have disclaimed a Facebook Handle in the name of the State Commissioner of Police Ari Mohammed Ali.

In a statement made available to AtlanticNewsonline on Monday, the Command’s spokesman DSP Bright Edafe said the “attention of the Command had been drawn to a fake Facebook Handle created by a mischievous person parading himself as CP Ari Mohammed Ali and has been using the fake account to defraud unsuspecting innocent citizens.”

The statement added that “the fraudster has reached out to some people via the Facebook Handle displaying some pictures of the CP in mufti and in police uniform with the user name Muhammed Ali Ari.”

“The fraudster further stated that the CP graduated from UNIJOS which is not true. He is using the account to fraudulently solicit for financial assistance from members of the public who have been deceived to believe that they are chatting with the CP.”

The Commisioner of Police Ali has therefore asked members of the public to disregard any request or message from this Facebook

Handle “as it is the handiwork of a criminal element parading himself as the CP with intent to defraud.”

The police boss has subsequently assured members of the public that measures have

been put in place with a view to arresting this imposter and to ensure that he is brought to book “
