The Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) has raised the alarm over the activities of some unscrupulous elements who are scamming unsuspecting members of the public by purporting to be conducting recruitment exercises on its behalf.
In a statement on Tuesday, the Service warned citizens that there is no recruitment exercise currently ongoing and that no agent(s), syndicate(s) or private individuals have been engaged to carry out any recruitment exercise on its behalf.
The Service stated that recruitment into the Service, when vacancy exists, is usually advertised for qualified candidates to indicate their interest online. The exercise is always free and does not involve any financial inducement.
It therefore warned members of the public to disregard entreaties from groups and individuals who are out to defraud unsuspecting Nigerians.
