Nigerian comedian and skit maker, Chukwuemeka Emmanuel popularly known as Oga Sabinus has raised alarm over the use of his name to scam gullible fans on the microblogging platform Twitter.
In a video shared on his page, Oga Sabinus said he had earlier lost his page and many fraudsters are using the opportunity to open fake accounts to impersonate him.
Oga Sabinus said while he is currently working on getting back his hacked account, a flurry of people have created multiple accounts in his name and also engaging in a giveaway spree to deceive his fans.
The skit maker encouraged his followers to be cautious to avoid being duped or being a victim of fake giveaways.
He said: ‘It has been brought to my notice about several accounts claiming to be me, some of them have been engaging in giveaways. I’m not the owner of those fake pages”.
“They had hacked my first account and while I’m making effort to get back the old account, some people have rushed to open new accounts on Twitter. I’m aware some of you may not know and had rushed to follow the pages, they are also doing giveaways”.
