Nigeria’s Immigration Service has denied reports that it is recruiting into the Service.
A statement issued by the Acting Comptroller General of Immigration, Isah Jere Idris said the spurious public notices circulating on social media announcing a general recruitment/replacement exercise into the Service were fake.
He said the report was done 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.
Idris advised Nigerians to ignore the publications as it was not undertaking a recruitment exercise whatsoever.
“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 said.
Idris noted that the Service uses conventional and notable social media means, including its website to announce recruitment exercises.
Idris assured that efforts were ongoing to track down those behind such fraudulent publications, with the aim of bringing them to justice.
