The statement read: "This is to inform the general public of some fraudulent advertisement making rounds as the official Nigerian Army (NA) advertisement for the 78 Regular Recruit Intake (RRI). The ad also displays fraudulent numbers as WhatsApp lines for help and information.

"The general public is kindly advised to disregard this ad as it is a fraud and not from the NA. The NA did not provide any phone number for access to help or information on WhatsApp for the 78RRI.

"For the avoidance of doubt, the registration web portal for 78RRI for trades/non-tradesmen and women is accessible on www.recruitment.army.mil.ng and most importantly, application into the NA is free."

The Nigerian Army also gave links to its official social media pages and domain. It urged members of the public to share the information to avoid leading people into the plan of internet scammers.
