Scammers Using Resident Consultant`s Name

My attention has been drawn to the fraudulent acts by some scammers who have been dropping my name with the intention to extort monies from unsuspecting members of the public on supposed summons by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

The scammers have been sending text messages to individuals, asking them to appear before ICPC for investigations with my name as undersigned .

I, therefore, wish to appeal to members of the Nigerian public to disregard such text messages, which never originated from me. Put succinctly, ICPC does not summon suspects through text messages since there are laid down rules for doing so.

On the other hand, I do not work in the Investigative Department of the ICPC and hence not qualified to summon anyone for investigations.

 Members of the public should please take note, as I believe that the scammers involved will soon fall into the hands of the law.
