The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Obuasi, Elijah Adansi-Bonah has cautioned residents and the general public against persons pretending to be him on popular social media platform, Facebook.
Mr. Adansi-Bonah gave the caution during an interview with the media after delivering his sessional address at a General Assembly meeting in Obuasi.
The caution according to the MCE has been necessitated by a series of complaints he has received about the nefarious activities of the impersonators hiding behind fake accounts in his name.
The Obuasi MCE said the impersonators were hiding behind his identity and Facebook name’ Elijah Adansi-Bonah’, to defraud unsuspecting members of the public who fell for their gimmicks and pretense of helping them get employed in the security services.
He distanced himself from having anything to do with the fake accounts.
He further strongly cautioned the public to cease any form of engagement with the faceless individuals behind the fake accounts. He added that anyone who continued was doing so at their own risk.
He said he has reported the matter to the Police and warned the impersonators to refrain from the illegality.
