The management of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, has dissociated itself from the information making the rounds that the agency was recruiting, describing it as false and misleading.
It therefore, said that anyone involved in designing websites for such exercises should be regarded as a criminal and scammer.
The Commandant General of NSCDC, Dr. Ade Abolurin, in a release on Friday described as disheartening the way people go about defrauding others in the name of job recruitment into the Service even when the Corps was not recruiting.
He reiterated that the advertisement by the Federal Ministry of Interior for job openings was only meant for Immigration Service and not the NSCDC, insisting that “any applicants who patronize fraudsters in the name of employment into the Corps does that at its own risk.”
NSCDC boss further stressed that the Corps was not recruiting and advised job seekers to be careful in order not to fall victim. “If the Corps is to recruit it is not by asking applicants to contact agents, consultants and persons on website.
“The Corps is hereby warning all job scammers to desist as the law is no respecter of anyone if caught. Applicants should note that ignorance is not an excuse before the law court as the Corps will neither allow its image and credibility to be rubbish by anyone nor take responsibility of crime committed by fraudsters and their cohorts. However, anyone caught in the act either the giver or the taker will be treated for committing the same offence”, Abolurin reiterated.
