- The Nigeria Immigration Service has alerted applicants against paying for its ongoing recruitment
- Muhammad Babandede who is the comptroller general of the NIS made this known on Tuesday
- The NIS boss said the service would always announce its official recruitment and notifications through credible Nigerian dailies and media platforms
If you are applying for recruitment under the Nigeria Immigration Service, the entire process is free of charge, according to the NIS comptroller general, Muhammad Babandede.
The NIS boss has thus warned all applicants to stop patronising fake recruitment sites that have been asking them for recruitment fees.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that this was contained in a statement made available by NIS spokesman, Sunday James, on Tuesday, June 30.
Legit.ng gathers that Babandede said there are fake NIS websites on social media set up to defraud unsuspecting Nigerians.
“The Service had warned severally and is still warning good spirited Nigerians to avoid such fake recruitment offer which is not officially posted on the official NIS website.
“No fee whatsoever is charged for NIS recruitment,” he said.
He, therefore, advised the public to disregard the scam posted recently to avoid falling victims to the criminal elements.
Babandede said that the NIS would always announce its official recruitment and notifications through credible Nigerian dailies and media platforms for the attention of the public.
NAN reports that the Civil Defense, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Service Board (CDCFIB) had published the recruitment advertisement in national dailies on March 13.
The recruitment was for four weeks from the time of publication.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the controller of the NIS, Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja command, Sadat Hassan, on Wednesday, June 17 accused some top politicians in the country and other individuals of preventing the arrest of irregular immigrants.
Hassan made the statement when members of the House of Representatives committee on diaspora visited the airport on assessment.
The NIS official alleged that such people always called her command to stop men of the NIS from arresting irregular immigrants.
The allegation won't come as a surprise to many in Nigeria. Politicians have a way of obstructing justice in many instances.
