The Accountant General of Lagos State, Mrs Abimbola Umar has escaped being duped to the tune of N50million by two fraudsters that impersonated Gov Akinwunmi Ambode.

According to a report by Punch, the alleged fraudsters, Rilwan Jamiu and Balogun Oyewole, cloned the governor's globacom line in a bid to fleece the state AG of the sum of N50m.

In her statement, the Accountant General said: "On Feb. 10, 2016, I received a text message at exactly 12.52 p.m.

"I initially thought the message is from His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Lagos state because the name with which I saved his number appeared in my inbox.

"The message reads, `AG, urgently transfer N50m to Dayder Limited account number 002806988 Keystone Bank. We will talk later, H.E.
