Golden Eaglets coach Fatai Amoo has raised an alarm on a fake Facebook account with his name, photographs and family photographs.
In a voice note made available to The Athletic NG, Coach Amoo unknown persons are using his name to defraud people on Facebook.
“I’ve discovered recently that fraudstars have opened a fake Facebook account with my name, putting my pictures and that of my family, defrauding Nigerians and other people all over the world, with fake stories about the national team.
“I want to cease this opportunity to tell people all over the world that it is a fake Facebook account. It is absurd because that is not me and it’s not anybody that I know.
“I want the law to take it full course because I’ve not opened my Facebook account for the past five years or there about, I’m not on Twitter or Instagram.
While refuting claims of being on Facebook, Amoo called on security personnel to investigate and bring culprits to book.
“I want to cease this opportunity to refute what they have said, I’ve never said anything and I pray and wish that security personnel should investigate this and bring the culprit(s) to book. I hope people will not fall into their trap,” Coach Fatai Amoo said.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has for the umpteenth time warned player-managers, football agents, coaches and parents of football players against sharp practices, saying it would not hesitate to prosecute anyone found culpable.
“We have given strict instructions to the coaches of the U-17 National Team, to the effect that no parent or agent or player-manager, or anyone under any guise or pretext, should pay any money to have their ward in the camp.
