Security Alert:  Fake Defence Twitter Handle (DHQ statement)

Social media sharing

1.     The Defence Headquarters wishes to call the attention of the general public of the emergence of a fake twitter handle @DefenseMonitor.  The twitter handle is mischievously using the Defence logo and posting tweets as though they are emanating from the Defence Headquarters.
2.    The tweets have started attracting reactions from unsuspecting members of the public.  The DHQ hereby call on patriotic citizens of our nation to disregard the twitter account and ignore the tweets, while the effort is underway to track the perpetrator of this heinous act.
3.     The official twitter handle of the Defence Headquarters is @DefenceInfoNG which is a verified account. People are advised to be conscious of increase in the number of  fraudsters who will go at any length to misrepresent the military and its Institutions, sometimes using such channel to swindle innocent members of the public. Please be guided.
