The Defence Headquarters has said that cyber criminals have hacked the facebook account of the Chief of Defence (Staff), CDS, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh.
This was contained in a statement by Director, Defence Information (DDI), Major General Chris Olukolade, on Monday.
It said: “The attention of Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has been drawn to the existence of fake facebook accounts being operated in the name of the Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal AS Badeh.”
The statement said the popular facebook accounts created by some cyber fraudsters go by different fake identities and official photographs of the Chief of Defence Staff.
“The pervasive facebook accounts have been misleading the general public who has been patronizing the sites. 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. This is for the awareness of the general public, please.”
