NIS warns applicants against alleged ‘recruitment fee’


Looking out for applicants, the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has warned applicants against patronising fake recruitment site saying that no fee was charged for NIS recruitment.

Tuesday,the NIS Comptroller General, Mr Muhammad Babandede in Abuja ,gave the warning in a statement by the Service Public Relations Officer (SPEO), Mr Sunday James.

Babandede issued the warning, following a report that there are fake NIS websites on social media.

“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,” he said.

He advised the public to disregard the scam posted recently to avoid falling victims to the criminal elements as the NIS would always announce its official recruitment and notifications to the public, through credible Nigerian dailies and media platforms.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Civil Defense, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Service Board (CDCFIB) had on March 13 published the recruitment advertisement in national dailies.

The recruitment spanned for four weeks from the time of publication.
