Public Relations Officer of the Corps, Emmanuel Okeh, who was speaking with reporters in Abuja on Friday, said that reports making the rounds that NSCDC is recruiting are fake and misleading.
He said: “If the Corps is to recruit, it is not by asking applicants to contact agents, consultants and persons on website.
“Therefore, anyone involved in designing websites for such exercise is a criminal and considered to be a scam.”
Okeh said the Commandant General of the Corps Dr. Ade Abolurin is disturbed by the activities of persons, who go about defrauding applicants in the name of recruitment into the service even when the Corps is not recruiting.
He stressed that the advertisement by the Federal Ministry of Interior through the Customs, Defence, Fire, Immigration and Prisons Board, CDFIPB, is only meant for the Immigration Service and not the Corps.
Okeh then warned those defrauding the public in its name thereby tarnishing its reputation, to desist from the act as they will be punished when caught.
