The acting Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) Isah Jere Idris has for the umpteenth time warned Nigerians to disregard ‘spurious public notices circulating in some social media platforms announcing a general recruitment/replacement exercise into the Service’ noting that the fake announcements are the handiwork of scammers. The acting CG stated this, through a press statement, shared with the National Association of Online Security News Publishers, NAOSNP by the Service’s PRO, Amos Okpu.
The press release noted: ‘The acting Comptroller General therefore wishes to use this opportunity to enjoin members of the public to avoid falling into the antics of fraudulent job merchants who are out there to deceive them with empty promises of job placement into the Service. He stressed that the Service has always used all the conventional and notable social media means including its website to announce recruitment exercises rather than the pedestrian approach used by the authors of the deceitful recruitment notices.’
‘Suffice it be stated clearly that the Service is currently NOT undertaking any recruitment exercise whatsoever and so the public is hereby advised to ignore any such publications’, the statement added.
The acting CG assured that efforts are ongoing to track down those behind such fraudulent publications with the aim of bringing them to justice.
