The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps NSCDC said it has placed its recruitment process on hold.
This coming as the corps alerted Nigerians to the activities of some fraudulent persons using text messages, social media platforms and forged letters to invite unsuspecting members of the public for job interviews.
Media Assistant to the Commandant General of the Corps, Ekunola Gbengam said the NSCDC is monitoring the ongoing Covid-19 situation and will continue to follow all health protocols put in place by Government.
“To keep everyone as safe as possible, we have decided to put on hold our recruitment process but all shortlisted applications remain ‘live’.
“In view of this, it has become necessary to state firstly, that the NSCDC is not currently conducting any form of interview, training or screening.
“Whenever such an exercise is imminent, members of the public would be duly informed through the NSCDC official website, www.nscdc.gov.ng, National dailies as well as on our official social media handles.’
“Furthermore, the NSCDC recruitment process is devoid of recruitment agents, hence anyone who claims to be operating in such capacity on behalf of the Corps is a fraudster.
“The Commandant General, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu wishes to advise prospective applicants to promptly report anyone who solicits for payments for recruitment into the Corps to the nearest NSCDC formations”, he said.
