The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Benue has drawn the attention of the public to the existence of employment racket within the command.
Speaking on Thursday, the NSCDC Commandant, Mr. Shuaibu Jibrin, revealed that the fraudsters have been collecting money from applicants in the guise of offering them employment into the organisation.
The Commandant, while assuring that it had already beamed its searchlights on the perpetrators, warned that all recruitment exercises by the organisation “are properly advertised through the mass media”.
He said: “Currently, the NSCDC is not carrying out any recruitment, the NSCDC recruits based on certain criteria and merit which is always advertised through the mass media.”
Jibrin also noted that applicants had never been charged during NSCDC’s recruitment exercises, adding that those behind the syndicate would soon be apprehended and brought to justice.
Speaking on Vandalism, the NSCDC Commandant disclosed that the command had stepped up its surveillance activities over such public utilities to prevent the operations of the vandals.
He added that three vandals had already been apprehended and were facing trial in the state.
Jibrin also called on authorities of the electricity company covering the state to ensure proper identification of its staff working on transformers and handling underground cables to avoid arrest by his men.
