General Ibrahim Babangida (Rtd), urged Nigerians to ignore any statement coming from the social media from him, as he is not on social media.
The former Head of States also said, he has no active twitter account and he does not operate any social media site.
“In the light of the unfortunate development, the media handlers of the former Military President wishes to inform the general public, particularly the Social Media community that IBB, as is fondly called, currently has no active twitter account and does not operate any other social media site,” the statement added.
“Also, we wish to state categorically that the twitter handles bearing the name and photographs of General Babangida are fictitious.
“Their creation by unscrupulous elements is aimed at misleading unsuspecting members of the public.
“Accordingly, we wish to advise the social media community and the general public to be wary of the ‘IBB’ fake accounts, mischievous online stories and discountenance whatever message conveyed therein about the revered Nigerian leader.”
