The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has warned unsuspecting applicants against patronising fake recruitment sites as no fee is charged for NIS recruitment.

This note of warning was given by the Comptroller General of the NIS, Mr Muhammad Babandede, in a statement signed by the Service Public Relations Officer (SPEO), Mr Sunday James, on Tuesday in Abuja.

Mr Babandede issued the warning while reacting to the reported existence of fake NIS websites on social media, which are swindling desperate job seekers.

“These are fraudsters with the intention of defrauding innocent and unsuspecting Nigerians of monies.

“The Service had warned severally and is still warning good spirited  Nigerians to avoid such fake recruitment offer which is not officially posted on the official NIS website.

“No fee whatsoever is charged for NIS recruitment,” the statement said.

Mr Babandede advised the public to disregard the scam posted recently to avoid falling victims to the criminal elements.

He further said that the NIS would always announce its official recruitment and notifications through credible Nigerian dailies and media platforms for the attention of the public.

The Civil Defense, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Service Board (CDCFIB) had published the recruitment advertisement in national dailies on March 13.

The recruitment was for four weeks from the time of publication and has since been over.
