Nigerians were on Tuesday advised by the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Muhammed Babandede, to stay away from patronising fake recruitment sites, he added that the Service is not recruiting.
The Spokesperson of the Service, Sunday James, stated that the Comptroller-General gave the warning due to the increase in fraud across Nigeria.
“This notice became necessary due to the increasing activities of fraudsters that have remained unrepentant.
“After several arrests and arraignment, they continue to open fake recruitment sites through which they defraud unsuspecting citizens of their money.
“The fake recruitment sites created by the fraudsters include https://www.recruitment.com.ng,hotnigerianjobs/military/nigeria-immigration-recruitment-portal-www-immigration-gov-ng.”
