News: Beware of Recruitment Fraudsters, Our Website Has Been Hacked – NSCDC Warns

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, yesterday in Abuja released an official statement debunking any ongoing recruitment saying its website has been hacked by fraudsters.

Commandant-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, Abdullahi Gana. The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) says its website has been hacked by online fraudsters and debunked any ongoing recruitment by the organisation.

The spokesperson of the Corps, Mr Emmanuel Okeh, disclosed this in a statement issued on Friday in Abuja.

Okeh said that the Commandant-General of the Corps, Mr Abdullahi Muhammadu, had warned the general public to disregard rumours of recruitment or replacement by the NSCDC.

“Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps is not recruiting as widely speculated on the internet and various social media platforms.

“Beware of 419 and fraudsters who have hacked into NSCDC’s website to dupe innocent and desperate job seekers online,’’ Okeh said.

He appealed to Nigerians to ignore all messages with religious undertone going viral; insisting that it is an attempt by mischief makers to use religion to dent the image of the Corps.

Okeh assured that when it was time for recruitment, the process would be published in various national dailies and electronic media and not online and social media.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that online fraudsters have been duping unsuspecting Nigerians through various website and social media platforms since the NSCDC announced plans to recruit 10,000 personnel.

NAN reports that the NSCDC had in December 2016 announced plans to recruit 10,000 personnel to beef up its operations, subject to approval by the Federal Government.

The NSCDC has continued to maintain that it had not gotten approval from the Federal Government for the recruitment following barrage of enquiries and fraudsters taking advantage of the situation.

In view of the ugly situation, the NSCDC boss, Abdullahi Muhammadu had directed the Intelligence and Anti Fraud units of the Corps to clampdown on the online job fraudsters with a view to stemming the tide.
