Billionaire oil magnate Femi Otedola has allegedly suspended his Twitter account until he is verified due to multiple attempts to impersonate 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 microblogging platform in February 2018.

However, the handle @realFemiOtedola started activities in May, a few weeks after his debut on Instagram.

Since the Billionaire announced his presence on social media, Twitter users have witnessed tweets from fake accounts who were all claiming to be the real Femi Otedola.

Barely five days after joining popular social media platform, he had to send a warning to Nigerians to avoid falling into the traps of his impersonators.

On May 15, Otedola narrated how he blocked an impersonator, who tried cloning his account. (NAN)
