Fraudsters are on the prowl. They are looking for people to defraud, with fictitious recruitment claims.
The Depot Nigerian Army has warned that these fraudsters are claiming to be recruiting candidates on its behalf.
In a statement issued on Friday by the spokesman for the Depot NA/Nigerian Military School, Captain Hussaini Sani, warned aspiring recruits against falling prey to the fraudsters.
It read: “It has been brought to the notice of the Headquarters of Depot Nigerian Army that criminal minded individuals are parading themselves as relatives to the Depot Commandant, Brigadier-General Victor Ezugwu.
“The fraudsters do that to defraud innocent citizens who were not successful during the just concluded 76 Regular Recruits Intake exercise.
“Others also claimed to be principal staff officers of Depot NA thereby convincing their victims to pay huge amount of money to be recruited into the Nigerian Army,” the statement warned.
It further explained that the Depot had no hand in conducting recruitment exercise, but only train those already selected.
It further stated that recruitment for 76 Regular Recruits Intakes had since been officially closed.
“Consequently, potential recruits are advised to try the next recruitment intake and not to allow these criminal minded and unpatriotic individuals to defraud them under any guise.
“Such arrangement does not exist and recruitment into the Nigerian Army is free and no candidate is expected to pay money to any individual whatsoever,” it added.
Investigation by the News Agency of Nigeria showed that activities of the fraudsters in Zaria had been on for years where they collect between 150,000 Naira and 300,000 Naira per candidate.
Also take note that there will be increase in fraudulent activities in an era of recession.
