The Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation has warned the general public against activities of criminal elements defrauding unsuspecting members of the public on the pretext of giving them federal jobs.
A statement by Segun Imohiosen, the Director, Information, on behalf of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, said members of the public “should desist from having any transaction with job racketeers claiming to be from the OSGF.”
The statement read in part: My attention has “been drawn to a certain fraudster, Mr. Musa Madugu, who has been defrauding unsuspecting Nigerians with fake appointments and claiming to be representing or being affiliated with the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Sen. George Akume,”
“In addition, the fraudster with this phone number, 08033453597, has been swindling people with a cloned phone number, 08032260729, purported to be SGF’s on True Caller; through which he was able to fleece the public of their hard earned money” the statement indicated.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the aforementioned phone number does not emanate from the SGF. And Mr. Musa Madugu is not an employee of the OSGF, and has no any affiliation whatsoever with the SGF. In this regard, the Office expressly disclaims all liabilities for or damages of any kind arising out of having any transaction with this fraudster” the statement emphasized.
The general public is hereby notified that the OSGF has no mandate to offer employments to Boards of the various Agencies, Parastatals and Extra-Ministerial Departments”.
“In view of the above, the SGF warns fraudster to desist forthwith from using his Office to dupe members of the public or face the wrath of the law.”
“In the event of any suspicious activity or concerns about potential fraud of job racketeering involving OSGF, kindly report immediately to the following official contact channels: on Facebook: @OfficeoftheSGF; Instagram: OfficialOSGFNG and X (formerly Twitter): OfficialOSGF and e-mail: Info@OSGF.gov.ng” the statement concluded.
