The Nigerian Navy on Sunday raised the alarm over a syndicate purportedly carrying our recruitment exercise on behalf of the Navy.
Director of Naval Information, Commodore Kabiru Aliyu, said in an electronic mail that the Navy had not directed anybody to carry out recruitment exercise on its behalf. Aliyu, who described those behind the said exercise as fraudsters, said the Navy had a standard procedure for its recruitment, calling on the members of the public to report anybody claiming to be recruiting for the Navy to law enforcement agents.
He warned that those purportedly claiming to be organising recruitment for the Navy were fraudsters who were out to swindle unsuspecting job seekers.
Aliyu said through a statement, “The attention of the Nigerian Navy has been drawn to the existence of some syndicates claiming to be carrying out recruitment exercise on behalf of the Service. “The Navy wishes to inform members of the general public that it has not commissioned any group to carry out any recruitment on its behalf.
The Service has a standard procedure for its recruitment exercise. “Recently, the Nigerian Navy through its own personnel carried out the first phase of its 2013 recruitment exercise nationwide. The exercise was well advertised in the print and electronic media and the result of the exercise is yet to be released.
