Central Bank of Nigeria closes over 100 fake social media accounts of CBN Governor

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) became aware of postings on social media platforms (including Facebook, Twitter) apparently  made by the CBN Governor, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi and has since clarified that the social media accounts are fake accounts.

CBN stated that the Governor has neither a Facebook or Twitter account and that in the past 6 months these platforms have been used to tarnish the image and reputation of the Governor. They have subsequently been able to close over 100 accounts with the collaboration of Facebook.

In addition they have laid a criminal case against one of the parties that used these channels to defraud members of the public.
