ALERT ON CIRCULATION OF FAKE DOCUMENTS
The Katsina State Government hereby alerts the general public of fake documents allegedly belonging the Government in circulation. The documents purportedly show financial transactions of the state government in what is a clear attempt to cause disaffection therefore threaten peace and harmony of the state.
The government’s initial countenance was to disregard the fake documents as the claims are too outrageous to warrant any response.
The doctored documents clearly put fact on its head by alluding to expenditure of funds that the Government does not even have. In undertaking the sinister mischief, the authors of the fake documents forged signatures of key government officials, including that of His Excellency the governor. This is a clear act of criminality.
The Government has therefore laid a formal complaint to security agencies to get to investigate the origin of these documents and bring those engaged in the acts to account.
We urge the good people of Katsina State to disregard the fake alarm and treat the fake documents as such.
Signed: Hon. Commissioner,
Ministry of Information, Culture & Home Affairs, Katsina State.
