The Atiku Media Office has warned that an online portal, the Atiku Foundation Youth Empowerment Fund, is a scam.

A statement on Monday by Paul Ibe on behalf of the Media Office said the portal  (https://bit.ly/ATIKU-YOUTH-EMPOWERMENT) had been set up by some unscrupulous elements with identity forgery of the former Vice President of Nigeria and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.

“The objective of the criminals behind this scam is to defraud unsuspecting members of the public by advertising the identity of Atiku Abubakar as being associated with the fraud.

“We warn supporters of Atiku 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 was first introduced in 2019 by criminal elements,” the statement noted.

It also warned the general public and supporters of the Waziri of Adamawa not to patronize any scheme in his name that is not expressly advertised on the verified social media accounts of Atiku Abubakar.

“We call on law enforcement agencies to track and arrest the individuals behind this online crime and identity forgery and bring them to face the law,” Ibe said.
