He said the attention of the service had been drawn to messages on social media, claimed to  have emanated from the official twitter handles of of the service.

“These twitter handles which also bear the Service’s symbols are not only fake but designed by their creators to deceive, misinform and defraud unsuspecting persons.

“It is also believed that such handles were desperately created by subversive elements to spread fake news and falsehood,” he said.

Afunanya, therefore, urged the public to disregard the twitter handles and any message(s) emanating from them.

He, however, added that a detailed investigation had begun to ensure that the suspects were apprehended and prosecuted.
