Chukwuemeka Emmanuel, also known as Oga Sabinus, a Nigerian comedian and skit producer, has expressed concern about the exploitation of his name to defraud gullible Twitter users.
In a video posted on his page, Oga Sabinus stated that he had previously lost his page and that many scammers are taking advantage of the situation by creating false profiles in his name.
While Oga Sabinus is seeking to reclaim his hijacked account, he claims that a slew of people has created multiple accounts in his name and gone on a giveaway binge to fool his supporters.
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”.
