Some journalists in Port Harcourt have come under heavy cyberattack, mostly by hacking. Now, the publisher of a PH-based publication National Network newspaper, Jerry Needam, has raised alarm over suspected Facebook hackers who are using his pictures on other Facebook accounts ostensibly to defraud gullible members of the general public.
Needam in a statement in Port Harcourt, said the criminal(s), one of whom goes by the name, ‘Steven Lugard’, have already used two of his pictures on two separate Facebook accounts with the name, ‘Steven Lugard’.
The Publisher called on his numerous Facebook friends and members of the general public to disregard any such Facebook Accounts bearing his pictures and that of the strange name (Steven Lugard), as they do not emanate from him, adding that the criminals are likely to hack into his Facebook to steal more of his photos for their nefarious activities.
Jerry Needam, while thanking his friends and all those who have been calling to draw his attention to the development, emphasized that ‘Steven Lugard’ is a criminal impostor and Facebook hacker and should be treated as such.
