Disregard trending messages on 5G migration. It?s fraud - Nigerian Police cybercrime unit warns public

The Nigeria Police Force National Cybercrime Centre (NPF-NCCC) has warned members of the public and strategic stakeholders in national security matters to be wary of a suspected ploy by subversive elements to prepare the ground for likely phishing and cyber-attacks through the deliberate publication and dissemination of a WhatsApp message, currently in circulation, purportedly from the Cybercrime Department of the Nigeria Police Force informing the general public of the commencement and warning of possible breaches in the migration protocols to the 5G network services.


A statement released by the force spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, says the Director in charge of the NPF-NCCC, DCP Uche Ifeanyi Henry, has stated that the message did not emanate from the Nigeria Police Force National Cybercrime Centre, and therefore warned the general public to be wary as it is likely the handiwork of cyber criminals setting the grounds to fleece innocent and unsuspecting members of the public of their monies or to steal their identities.


”’The general public is hereby advised to discountenance the broadcast message and cease sharing such, as it is deceptive and misleading. Genuine guidelines on the roll-out and migration to the 5G network will be available in due time on authorized websites and verified social media handles of the NPF-NCCC, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Telecom Companies, and other communication service providers.” part of the statement read
