Customer: Deep, none of what you have replied back answers my initial questioning
Deep :

Facebook support are the only people who can if possible find out who hacked your facebook account and give you any details.So we have to go that way to find out.

Customer: How could I find out the ip address of the computer used to access the fb account? I have asked some IT guys to look into it, what will/can they do
Deep :

No they won't possibly able to find out only if there is from backend Facebook support can have a track of this.

Customer: Oh ok, so only facebook can find out where this hack originated from? No other possible way.
Deep :

No. It depends on who keeps a track of this. In this case its facebook. Being a well known website with so many users around the world security is always a concern.The support will come up with some options for you they will also come up with some details on facebook security for you so that such a thing won't happen again to your account.

Customer: So without fb help they cannot find out any information? Even if they go onto my fb account?
Deep :

No. Thats right. Actual backend details are with facebook support.
