With respect to the ongoing recruitment, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has cautioned the public against the activities of fraudsters – disguising to be working as the organisation’s recruitment agents – with the ‘sole’ aim to extort money from unsuspecting Nigerians.
This caution was made by the Director of Public Relations and Information of the service, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, in a statement he made available to newsmen on Thursday in Abuja.
According to him, the attention of the service had been drawn to the activities of fraudsters masquerading as NAF recruitment agents.
He said it was disheartening that some people still allowed themselves to be swindled by these unscrupulous individuals in spite of repeated warnings by the service.
The director said that efforts had been geared towards enlightening the public about the activities of the fraudsters.
The spokesman said it had become necessary to warn the public against patronising the fraudsters, who usually asked people to pay money into some bank accounts for recruitment.
Famuyiwa said recruitment and selection process into the service remained free, without any form of gratification.
He stressed that the service had no recruitment agents, hence anyone who claimed to be operating in such capacity on behalf of the service would be considered as a fraudster.
