Engr. Abdu Bello Mohammed, the Managing Director of an energy company in Nigeria, christened the Jos Electricity Distribution Company, situated in northern Nigeria, has raised the alarm over an imposter who goes about with his name to defraud the general public.

The imposter who’s real identity is Emmanuel Sochima Alioka printed a fake identity card with the Jos DisCo Managing Directors name, deceiving unsuspecting customers of the company.

“This criminal is indulging in identity theft by going around duping people in the name of  processing or facilitating contracts with the Federal Ministry of Power on my behalf”, a statement issued by the Spokesman of the Company, Dr. Friday Adakole Elijah said.

Elijah said the Managing Director of the company has vehemently distanced himself from the criminal and his activities in all ramifications and has nothing to do with him (Alioka).

“I also have no form of relationship with Mr. Emmanuel Sochima Alioka.

“I therefore call on the general public to take note and should not oblige him with any form of patronage because he is nothing but a criminal”, the statement reads.
