The Nigerian Army has warned members of the public particularly young Nigerians to be wary of fake recruitment adverts, stressing that the legit portal for such exercise is yet to be opened.
The warning was contained in a statement issued by Maj. Nsima Essien, Assistant Director, Army Public Relations, Directorate of Army Recruitment, Resettlement and Reserve (DARRR), on Sunday in Port Harcourt.
Essien who noted that the attention of the Nigerian Army had been drawn to fake recruitment adverts making the rounds in the media, described the development as a handiwork of fraudsters and tasked aspiring applicants on the need to be wary of such scams.
She said: “The attention of the DARRR has been drawn to the circulation of fake recruitment form for 2020/2021, obtained through the web link: http://recruitment.army.mil.ng. “The website is purportedly seeking the enlistment of citizens into the Nigerian Army.
“The directorate wishes to inform the public that the recruitment form in circulation is fake, and the web link is not the official website of DARRR.” Essien pointed out that the DARRR recruitment portal had not been opened to applicants seeking to enlist for 80 regular intakes into the army.
“So the public is hereby requested to note that all information related to DARRR can be accessed through its official website: https://recruitment.army.mil.ng.
“To this end, this disclaimer, therefore, serves as timely notice for the public to beware of the scam.”
