The Nigerian Immigration Service NIS, has denied spurious public notices circulating in the media of an ongoing recruitment exercise into the service.
In a statement on behalf of the acting Comptroller General of Immigration, Isah Jere Idris, ACI Amos Okpu, NIS Public Relations Officer, noted that the publication is nothing but a grand design by some fraudulent persons, who are seeking to deceive and exploit unsuspecting members of the public into parting with their hard-earned resources for non-existent vacancies.
Okpu said apart from the fact that the entire publication is a product of very poor conception, the portal indicated for application is strange to decency.
He added that the Service is currently not undertaking any recruitment exercise, advising Nigerians to ignore any such publications.
“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.
“He assured that efforts are ongoing to track down those behind such fraudulent publications with the aim of bringing them to justice,” the statement concluded.
