Billionaire oil magnate Femi Otedola has allegedly suspended his Twitter account until he is verified due to multiple attempts to impersonate him on the platform.
Announcing his move, Otedola wrote, “Good day to the online community. Due to the fraudulent and disingenuous exploitation of my persona on this platform, tweets from me on this account are suspended forthwith until I am verified by Twitter. Thank you. F.Ote$”
The decision came following a tweet by a fake account commiserating with victims of the recent Lagos Tanker Explosion Incident.
The impersonator promised cash gifts to families in the name of Otedola and said that the tanker involved in the accident was his. This prompted Otedola to post a statement on the account before suspending tweeting activities.
He joined the micro blogging platform in February 2018.
