The Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) has described the news on some social media platforms about the general recruitment/replacement exercise staff as spurious, adding that the service is not undertaking any recruitment at the moment.
In a statement by Assistant Comptroller of Immigration Service, Amos Okpu on Saturday, the publication is nothing but a grand design by some fraudulent persons who are seeking to deceive and exploit unsuspecting members of the public into parting with their hard-earned resources for non-existent vacancies.
The statement pointed out that apart from the fact that the entire publication is a product of very poor conception, the portal indicated for application is strange to decency.
“... wishes to use this opportunity to enjoin members of the public to avoid falling into the antics of fraudulent job merchants who are out there to deceive them with empty promises of job placement into the Service,” part of the statement reads.
He stressed that the service always used all the conventional and notable social media means, including its website to announce recruitment exercises rather than the pedestrian approach used by the authors of the deceitful recruitment notices.
He assured that efforts are ongoing to track down those behind such fraudulent publications with the aim of bringing them to justice.
