Nigerians interested the seeking jobs at the Nigerian Air Force have been warned against falling victims of fraudsters.
The Force's spokesperson Ibikunle Daramola said there have been reports of some criminal individuals using fake Facebook and WhatsApp groups to extort money from unsuspecting applicants.
Daramola said the fraudulent individuals are extorting money from applicants under the false impression that they can guarantee them jobs in the service, particularly through the 2020 NAF Trades/Non-Trades Men and Women Recruitment Exercise.
The NAF spokesperson said the entire NAF Recruitment process is completely free of charge.
Interested applicants who meet the job's requirements published on all NAF official social media handles are advised to apply online at the NAF official website, www.airforce.mil.ng, from Friday, July 24 to Friday, August 21.
"Applicants are NOT required to pay money to anyone for any purpose throughout the process," Daramola said.
The NAF, thus, urged applicants and the general public not to join any such WhatsApp, Facebook or any other social media groups and have no dealings with anyone demanding money as a guarantee for recruitment into the service.
Applicants are also advised to report anyone asking them for money to the nearest NAF Unit, Nigeria Police Post/Office or through the following phone numbers/email address:
Phone numbers: 09064432351, 09055840142, 08053440802 (available Monday – Friday between 8.30am and 5.30pm), email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meanwhile, lives were saved and some herds of cattle recovered in Kaduna on Sunday, June 21, as the operatives of the Nigerian Air Force thwarted an attack by armed bandits along the Kwauya-Tsamiya village.
This was revealed in a statement released on Monday, June 22, by Major General John Enenche who is the coordinator of defence media operations at the Defence Headquarters.
Legit.ng gathers that the attack was repelled by the personnel of the 404 Force Protection Group (404 FPG) NAF Base Kaduna.
Enenche explained that the bandits had raided the Fulani settlements and seized some herds of cattle at gun point.
A Rapid Response Force (RRF) team supported by NAF special forces and local vigilantes was subsequently dispatched to pursue and recover the rustled cattle.
While there were no casualties among the security operatives and civilians, some of the bandits managed to escape with gunshot wounds.
The bandits were also forced to abandon 40 cattle as they fled in different directions.
The NAF commended the officers for their gallantry and urged them to sustain their efforts to curb the activities of bandits and all other criminal elements.
