The fake website is used for fraudulent activities, the agency said.
The Ogun/Osun River Basin Development authority on Thursday disclaimed a website being operated by suspected fraudsters.
The authority said the controversial website, www.oorbda.com, has a fake logo which looks like the Osun State coat of arms and claims that the establishment is located at number 122, Alabata Road, Abeokuta.
The Ogun/Osun River Basin Authority further informed that the operators of the website have been transacting businesses with unsuspecting members of the public within and outside the country on letter heads bearing its name, logo and address.
While warning and cautioning the public from transacting business with the suspected fraudsters, the management dissociated itself from the operators and activities.
“Our authority dissociates itself from this website, its owners and their activities. The public is hereby warned not to have anything to do with them,” the agency said in a statement.
The organisation emphasised that for clarity, the authentic website of the establishment is www.oorbda.com.ng stressing that for more information and clarification, members of the public are advised to visit its headquarters or contact 08033479021
The Public Relations Officer of Ogun/Osun Rivers Basin Development Authority, Femi Dokunmu confirmed the development.
