ABUJA—The Nigerian Navy has raised alarm over fake recruitment syndicates claiming that they were authorised to recruit personnel for the Navy.

The Navy, meanwhile, has cautioned members of the public to be wary of these fake syndicates which specialise in extorting money from intending recruits who had applied to join the Nigerian Navy.

Director of Navy Information, Commodore Kabir Aliyu, who expressed worries over the nature of the scam, weekend, urged the public to desist from patronising any syndicate as the Navy does its recruitment on its  own.

He regretted that some fraudulent Nigerians had taken undue advantage of the unemployment situation in the country to defraud innocent applicants.
