SWITZERLAND, JUNE 24 – The new Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation(NNPC), Mele Kolo Kyari has drawn the attention of Nigerians to a fake Facebook account impersonating him.

The new NNPC boss revealed on Sunday evening with this tweet:

“My attention has been drawn to some Facebook accounts claiming to be Mele Kyari bent on defrauding the general public. Please note that i do not currently have any Facebook account and will never transact any business on social media platforms.”

“Kindly disregard any account on Facebook claiming to be Mele Kyari. Thank you,” he added.

Mele Kyari was appointed to head the NNPC on Thursday, June 20 after heading the corporation’s crude marketing division. His appointment initially generated some controversy because of the similarity between his name and that of the president’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.

However, government sources maintained that the two are not related, though originating from the same state.
