Social media accounts bearing my name are fictitious–IBB
The attention of General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (GCFR), has been drawn to the existence of several twitter handles and other social media accounts, purportedly owned by him.
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 he is fondly called, currently has no active twitter account and does not operate any other social media site.
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.
