The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has warned applicants against patronising fake recruitment sites, stating that no fee is charged for its recruitment exercise.
The NIS Comptroller General, Mr Muhammad Babandede, gave the warning in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by the Service Public Relations Officer (SPEO), Mr Sunday Jame.
Babandede was reacting to the reported existence of fake NIS recruitment websites on social media.
He said: “These are by fraudsters with the intention of defrauding innocent and unsuspecting Nigerians of monies.
“The Service had warned severally and is still warning good spirited Nigerians to avoid such fake recruitment offer which is not officially posted on the official NIS website.
“No fee whatsoever is charged for NIS recruitment.”
Babandede advised the general public to disregard any information that does not emanate from the NIS official website to avoid falling victim to the criminal elements.
He said that the NIS would always announce its official recruitment and notifications through credible Nigerian dailies and media platforms for the attention of the public.
