The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has warned members of the public to beware of activities of fraudsters.
This is contained in a statement issued by the NIS spokesperson, Mr Ekpedeme King, on Saturday in Abuja.
King said that the Service was not engaged in any recruitment exercise.
He cautioned members of the public, especially the youths, not to pay money to any faceless individual in a bid to get employment into the service.
“ The attention of the Comptroller-General of Nigeria Immigration Service, Mr Martins Abeshi, has been drawn to some faceless individuals deceiving unsuspecting members of the public for placement into the Nigeria Immigration Service.
“ It has therefore, become imperative to state categorically that the Nigeria Immigration Service is not engaged in any recruitment exercise,’’ he said.
He called on Nigerians to ignore any offer of employment as such activity remained the handiwork of fraudsters.
King explained that the service had a duty to advertise any recruitment in line with the extant laws and would always advertise it in the media
