Again, the Department of State Service has raised the alarm and warned against fraudulent recruitment exercises aimed at defrauding unsuspecting Nigerians.
The agency’s spokesperson, Peter Afunnaya, who gave the warning said the DSS is not running any recruitment program currently.
He said the agency had been alerted of a fraudulent recruitment process spearheaded by one Jesustofunmi Nifemi Alabi. According to him, the DSS does not own a Facebook account or operate other social media platforms.
Afunnaya further explained that Jesutofunmi created a Facebook group, SSS/DSS Recruitment 2019/2020, to deceive unsuspecting job hunters.
However, he urged Job seekers are to make recruitment enquiries from the Service’s Headquarters, Abuja, its formations nationwide or official website.
The DSS had earlier raised security alert about plans by some elements to incite ethnic and religious violence in Nigeria. The agency said latest developments indicate desperate efforts by the criminal elements to subvert public order.
