The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development has described as “fake news”, a link claiming Nigerians can claim N-Power Trust Funds Grant.

The Ministry via its verified Twitter handle on Friday stated that the website, fmhds.gov.ng.claim-It.online is spurious.

The ministry of humanitarian affairs oversees the social investment programmes of Nigeria, including N-Power.

Scrutiny by AllNews

You might have come across this dishonest, but promising ad on the internet recently.

AllNews understands that the post about this purported N-Power Trust Funds Grant has been shared multiple times since publication. 

It quickly went viral, particularly on WhatsApp. It links to a basic web page.

The “N-Power Trust Funds Grant” web page is suspicious for several reasons.

If the page is left open in a browser for a few minutes, it redirects to dodgy websites.
