The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has dissociated the Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, from fake Face book accounts being operated by some fraudsters in the country.
This is contained in a statement issued on Monday in Abuja and signed by Maj.-Gen Chris Olukolade, Director of Defence Information.
“We wish to therefore dissociate the CDS from the said accounts and call on the general public not to patronise them.
“The DHQ views this as a criminal act and effort is being made to track and bring the perpetrators to book,” Olukolade said.
He said the pervasive face book accounts had been misleading the public, whom he said, had been patronising the sites.
According to Olukolade, the face book accounts go by different fake identities and official photographs of the Chief of Defence Staff.
