- From Tina Abeku, Abuja

T HECommanda­nt- General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corp, ( NSCDC), Dr. Ahmed Audi, has warned of the activities of fraudsters offering fake and non- existent jobs to unsuspecti­ng members of the public.

In a communiqué, the CG said some individual­s have been circulatin­g a fake 2019/ 2021 recruitmen­t list on various social media platforms claiming that it is the list of those offered employment by the Agency but are in fact fraudsters seeking to defraud the public.

The CG said, “The purported list of successful applicants for NSCDC job going viral on social media came as a shocking news to the Corps. Hence, the need to alert members of the public to the fake, mischievou­s, misleading and perfidious list capable of sending wrong signals to Nigerians especially applicants from different parts of the country.”

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 unscrupulo­us elements who are taking advantage of the economic situation in the country to defraud unsuspecti­ng members of the public.
