The Atiku Media Office Monday described an online portal set up in the name of Vice President Atiku Abubakar,“ the Atiku Foundation Youth Fund’’ as fake and a scam.

The office in a statement by his Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, Monday in Abuja, said that the portal set up by some unscrupulous elements with identity forgery of the vice president and chieftain of the PDP.

Ibe said that the objective of the criminals behind the scam to defraud unsuspecting members of the public by advertising the identity of Abubakar as being associated with the fraud.

“We warn supporters of Abubakar and the general public not to patronize any portal called Atiku Foundation for Youth Empowerment.

“The portal is fake and certainly does not enjoy the authorization of Atiku. Indeed this scam first introduced in 2019 by criminal elements.

“We also warn the general public and supporters of the Waziri of Adamawa not to patronize any scheme in his name, which is not expressly advertised the verified social media accounts of Atiku Abubakar.’’

Ibe called law enforcement agencies to track and arrest the individuals behind the online crime and identity forgery and bring them to face the law.
