“This is only a theft of identity; but case of fraud, impersonation and total misrepresentation of the person of the Kaduna State Governor-elect, Malam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai.

“We are by this notice calling on the general public to disregard any electronic message and received in this regard, it is criminal and not from the person of the governor-elect.

“The public should not only disregard fraudster(s) impersonating Malam El-Rufai; but report him/her/them to security agencies or alert office of the governor-elect for prompt action.

“This is a clear case of impersonation as the governor-elect will never ask anyone for money in this way. Anyone receives this kind of email request should know it is not from Malam El-Rufai but fraudulent elements.

“The case has been reported to Hotmail and the relevant enforcement agencies for necessary action,’’ it stated. (NAN)
