Lagos Police uncovers fake CP Facebook account

The Lagos State Police Command in a statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, DSP Kenneth Nwosu and made available to Daily Champion said it has uncovered a fake Facebook account bearing the name of its Commissioner of Police, CP Kayode Aderanti. The account in question which is “CP Kayode Aderanti” was recently introduced by one shadowy character as the authentic Facebook account of the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command to members of the Social Network with the intention of giving the impression that images being displayed and comments from this fraudulent account are made by the reputable Commissioner of Police Lagos State.
”For the avoidance of doubt, the Commissioner of Police Lagos State Command, CP. Kayode Aderanti does not in any way operate a Facebook account (either official or private).
“Therefore, the Commissioner of Police advises all members of the public and in particular Facebook users to ignore the said account as it does not belong to him.
”Consequently, any correspondence or exchange of messages on the page has nothing to do with the Commissioner of Police Lagos State Command or any officer of the Nigeria Police Force at large.
“We therefore advise the general public to disregard any comments, solicitations and approaches from this account as it is certainly not operated by CP Kayode Aderanti or any of his officers.
“While efforts are being made to apprehend the character (s) behind this fraudulent act, let me assure the general public of the resolve of the Lagos State Command to sustain the tempo of crime fighting to ensure that Lagosians and all others who  have cause to come to Lagos enjoy a conducive environment for business and leisure.
