The Nigerian Army has warned the public that currently there is no recruitment going on in the force for any positions, contrary to a publication trying to defraud people.
It said scammers have been advertising alleged recruitment into the Nigerian Army.
The Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier-General Texas Chukwu, in a statement on Monday, July 9, 2018, stated that recruitment into the Nigerian Army is free and that no intermediary is required.
The statement read:
“The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to the activities of a syndicate trying to defraud members of the public of their hard earned money through alleged recruitment into the Nigerian Army.
“The Army wishes to state that recruitment into the Force is free and no intermediary is required before being recruited into the Army. The Army is not embarking on any replacement of any candidate for whatever reason as claimed by the said publication.”
The Army further warned the Nigerian public to always adhere strictly to its criteria for recruitment to avoid being duped by unscrupulous elements.
Meanwhile, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), on Sunday said it will recruit additional 4,650 officers and procure new logistics vehicles to improve road safety management in the country.
