The Senator representing Osun West Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Adelere Oriolowo has urged the general public to beware of fraudsters using his name for fraudulent activities using the social media.
This was contained in a statement released by the Senator Oriolowo Media office and made available to Affairs TV by the media aide to the Senator, Oluniyi Hisamotu on Sunday in Osogbo.
The fraudsters were said to have opened an account in the name of the senator and are asking the populace to pay a certain amount to buy a form and qualify for a program that was sponsored by the Senator.
Oriolowo described this act as “evil” and states clearly that he has nothing to do with these evil doers.
He explained further that there is an Agricultural programme he is planning but that the program has not fully matured and that when it matures a proper announcement will be made to that effect.

BEWARE OF FRAUDSTERS USING MY NAME FOR FRAUDULENT ACTIVITIES, SENATOR ORIOLOWO URGES THE PUBLIC
It has been brought to our notice that some unscrupulous and criminal elements are using the name and status of Senator Adelere Oriolowo to engage in some criminal activities unknown to the unsuspecting members of the public.
It was learnt, the criminal elements have been using a certain Facebook account “Engr Lere Oriolowo” which does not belong to the Senator or managed by any of his aides to invite people to do the bidding of their fraudulent business concerning an Agricultural empowerment program that the Senator is just about to unveil officially to the public.
These fraudsters are asking the unsuspecting members of the public to pay for a form before their name will be included in those that Distinguished Senator Adelere Oriolowo would be giving grant to support their Agricultural business. Regrettably, we learnt that someone has already fall victim of this to the tune of Sixty-two Thousand Naira(#62,000).
We however wish to make it known to the public that Senator Adelere Oriolowo of Osun-west Senatorial District does not authorized this, he’s not involved in this and will never ask people to pay a dime before they will benefit from any dividends of democracy he has in plan for the residents and indigents of Osun-west Senatorial District and Nigeria at large.
Of a fact, there’s an Agricultural empowerment program the Senator has in plan for the people of his constituency, but such empowerment program will not take the devilish, unscrupulous, criminal and fraudulent ways these fraudsters are engaging in.
We want to make it known to the public that, for every of the empowerment programmes the Senator has in plan for his constituency, his media department and legislative aides will inform the public duly on what processes and modalities it will take.
Equally, if there’s any information any member of the public heard about the Distinguished Senator, but it’s not quite satisfactory to them, we urge them to consult his constituency office, the media department of the Distinguished, his legislative aides or any of his official aides especially Hon Tajudeen Ayofe for explicit explanation on their enquiries.
Conclusively, we want to assure that these criminals engaging in this fraudulent activities will be tracked, arrested and made to face the court of law but the public should be wary of them against future occurrences.
Thanks and God bless.
