In a statement released today, the former Anambra State governorship aspirant wrote:
My attention has been drawn to a spate of fraudulent facebook posts/messages being bandied around under the guise of Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah in a bid to extort unsuspecting and innocent people.
These messages mostly take the form of promising employment in my various establishments (mostly Capital Oil and Gas, The Authority Newspapers, FC Ifeanyi Ubah), with the unemployed and underemployed being the obvious targets. This has left me in rude shock and I sincerely empathize with all those who might have fallen prey to these devilish vultures.
In view of the above, I sincerely plead with everyone, especially my teeming followers to kindly disregard all messages and facebook posts emanating from other facebook accounts/pages under the guise of Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah. They are all parody accounts/pages and all of them are the works of mischievous people with the sole intention of defrauding unsuspecting and innocent people.
Please NOTE that I do not promote any business activity that requires any form of payment online NEITHER will I solicit for payments of any service through Facebook, twitter or any other social media platform. Any/all vacancies in my companies (Capital Oil and Gas Industries Limited, The Authority Newspapers, FC Ifeanyi Ubah amongst others) will be duly advertised in at least one of the daily newspaper in line with the policy of the respective companies.
We have reported several of these accounts and their activities to the appropriate authorities and investigations have commenced. While Facebook have graciously taken down some of these accounts, we are putting extra efforts to make sure these unscrupulous elements are tracked down, exposed and made to face the law after we must have revealed their true identities to the world.
NOTE: MY ONLY FACEBOOK PAGE IS DR. PATRICK IFEANYI UBAH WITH URL https://facebook.com/ifeanyiubahgovernor/ WHILE MY ONLY FACEBOOK ACCOUNT IS PATRICK IFEANYI UBAH WITH URL https://www.facebook.com/patrick.ubah.37 (please feel free to send your friend requests or follow me).
For this menace to be curbed, I humbly call on everyone to kindly report any Facebook account/page found to be impersonating Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah to Facebook or call the numbers below to report these devious and dubious persons and their activities so that we can take action immediately:
Chinazor - +2348170923813
Chinedu - +2348033222025
For those who share these posts and messages erroneously, I respectfully implore you to kindly desist from sharing these fraudulent posts/messages and help render the activities of these conmen futile.
