The All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday cried out over the activities of fraudsters who have been duping unsuspecting Nigerians under the pretext of securing appointment for them under the incoming Major-General Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

In a statement issued in Abuja yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party challenged the security agencies and the telecommunications service providers to help fish out those who have being seeking to fish out the culprits who are carrying out their nefarious activities through a non-existent APC Screening Committee.

The party said the call has become necessary because the scammers have persisted in their fraudulent ways, despite previous warnings by the party for them to desist.

“These ‘419ners’ have a telephone number, 08107400745, an email address ( and a front (Dr. Favour Idiodie), who is supposedly the Screening Committee Secretary. It should therefore not be difficult for the security agencies, working with the service providers, to fish them out and to make them face the full wrath of the law,” it said.

APC repeated its earlier warning, contained in a statement it issued on April 21st 2015, to Nigerians to beware of such fraudulent claims, saying the party has not set up any committee to which Nigerians should submit their CVs for screening and possible federal appointments.
