The Department of State Services (DSS) has declared that it is not currently carrying out any recruitment exercise contrary to claims in some quarters of the social media space.
In a clarification, the spokesman of the secret police in Nigeria, Mr Peter Afunanya, warned the public against falling prey to the activities of fake job syndicates.
Mr Afunanya also urged unsuspecting job-seekers not to pay any money for a slot in the intelligence agency as the DSS does not request for such.
“The public should note that recruitment into the service is never done on a monetary basis.
“Instead, it is guided by merit and transparency. Beneficiaries undergo a series of screening and vetting processes and procedures through which only the best, produced by these, is taken.
“In the context of this, members of the public should be mindful of attempts by fraudulent persons and/groups to fleece them of their hard-earned money.
“They should rather report to the Service any suspicion in this regard.
“Those engaged in misleading acts of raising false recruitment alerts or defrauding others are warned to desist from such or be ready to face the music.
“So far, the service has been sustaining efforts on clamping down on the activities of fake job syndicates illegally using its name to deceive and scam the public,” he said.
