Written by freshadmin3 on July 7, 2021
The Commandant-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corp, (NSCDC), Dr. Ahmed Audi, has warned of the activities of fraudsters offering non-existing jobs to unsuspecting members of the public.
Audi said some individuals have been circulating a fake 2019/20121 recruitment list on social media, claiming that it is the list of those offered employment by the agency.
Audi said the list is meant to swindle the public.
“The purported list of successful applicants for NSCDC job going viral on social media came as a shocking news to the Corps who has not released or published any recruitment list whatsoever, hence, the need to alert members of the public to this fake, mischievous, misleading and perfidious list capable of sending wrong signals to Nigerians especially applicants from different parts of the country,” he said.
Audi said the Corps wish to set the record straight and state unequivocally that the list did not emanate from the Corps nor the Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration and Correctional Service Board but the hand work of some unscrupulous elements who are taking advantage of the economic situation in the country to defraud unsuspecting members of the public.
He said “Members of the public are therefore warned to disregard the fake recruitment list currently being circulated across the country as a ploy by nefarious individuals and mischief makers to defraud innocent job seekers, some of whom have been made to part with different amount of money in their desperation for NSCDC recruitment.
The NSCDC recruitment list will be published in the mainstream media once it is ready, he however assured Nigerians that in due cause, the perpetrations of this callous act shall be nabbed and made to face the full wrath of the law.”
Meanwhile, a committee of inquiry has been set up to investigate the ongoing fake recruitment with the aim of exposing the individual(s) behind it.
