DAILY FILE – Following relentless efforts by scammers to defraud members of the public in the name of civil defence recruitment, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps ( NSCDC) has alerted members of the public especially desperate job seekers to be wary of antics of fraudsters.
Speaking on the worrisome menace of job racketeers, Kaduna State Commandant of the corps, Alhaji Modu Bunu, said the call has become
necessary in spite of previous warnings to prevent ‘desperate’ unemployed persons from been defrauded.
ASC Orndiir Terzungwe, State Public Relations Officer,in a statement for the commandant quoted Bunu as saying that, the warning was imperative due to a social media advert stating that government has approved recruitment of 40,000 persons, comprising graduates and non graduates.
The fake publication which enjoined applicants to go online and fill recruitment forms according to Bunu was not only false, but dubious, mischievous and deliberate design to smear the reputation of the
Bunu said “Those who are interested in joining the NSCDC should wait for adverts in national dailies and shun what is being circulated on social media because for now the corps is neither recruiting nor conducting replacement exercise”
The fake social media publication reads in part: “FG approves immediate 10,000 Graduate and 30, 000 Non Graduate recruitment at Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps.”
However, the commandant, said “Let me state further that, careful investigations have revealed that the site provided for the alleged scandalous exercise does not even exist.
While the corps is making frantic efforts towards unmasking the perpetrators of this act and sanctioning them in line with the provisions of the law, anyone who chooses to enter into any transaction with them should not that such is entirely carried out at their risk” Bunu warned.
