ALERT: Immigration Service is not recruiting – Board

The Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire, and Immigration Services Board (CDCFIB) has distanced itself from the fake vacancies in the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) being circulated on social media.

In a statement signed by the secretary of the board, Hajia Rufai Ahmed, on behalf of the Chairman of the CDCFIB, Rauf Aregbesola, on Thursday night, said the report was fake and the handiwork of scammers.

An advertisement indicating a job opening in the NIS for 3600 slots in the superintendent, inspectorate and assistant cadres is currently trending on social media but the board said Nigerians should ignore the information.

“The CDCFlB hereby advise the general public to ignore such FAKE INFORMATION as there is no iota of truth in such report,” the statement said.

Similarly, the NIS in a statement by its spokesman, Amos Okpu, said: “It is important to state categorically that 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.

“Apart from the fact that the entire publication is a product of very poor conception, the portal indicated for application is strange to decency.

“Suffice it be stated clearly that the Service is currently NOT undertaking any recruitment exercise whatsoever and so the public is hereby advised to ignore any such publications.”

Okpu quoted the Comptroller General of Immigration, Isah Jere Idris, as assuring that efforts were ongoing to track down those behind such fraudulent publications with the aim of bringing them to justice.
