If you want to join the Nigerian Navy, be patient and do not fall for the tricks of scammers who have developed fake online recruitment portals.

The 2017 recruitment form will be free of charge whenever registration commences.

The Nigerian Navy on Wednesday alerted Nigerians on the activities of the fraudsters currently demanding fees to purchase entry forms.

The Navy’s Director of Information, Captain Suleiman Dahun, in Abuja, said for the avoidance of doubt, the portal for registration of candidates for the 2017 NN Recruitment Exercise has not been opened.

“Therefore, innocent members of the public are advised to steer clear of these fraudulent sites.

“Furthermore, information will be conveyed to the public on the commencement of the recruitment exercise in the mass media,” he said.
