The Comptroller-General, Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Mr David Parradang has urged Nigerians seeking employment into the service to disregard money-for-job offers by individuals, saying they are scams.
In a statement signed by the service Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mr Chukwuemeka Obua on Saturday, February 21, 2015 in Abuja, the service said that many criminal elements were currently using fake websites and social media accounts to defraud unsuspecting members of the public seeking enlistment into the NIS.
It said that these criminal elements used the fake sites to pose as the Comptroller-General and the PRO of the service to offer job placements to unsuspecting members of the public.
“The Comptroller-General wishes to advise members of the public to disregard any such money-for-job offers on the fake website and social media platforms.’’
It said that the ongoing recruitment as being handled by the Presidential Committee set up to assist in the conduct of 2015 Immigration recruitment exercise would be fair and transparent.
The NIS has said that the official website for the recruitment was www.fedcivilservice.gov.ng while the official website of the NIS was www.immigration.gov.ng.
