The Nigerian Air Force, NAF, on Friday warned the general public to be wary of any person(s) parading themselves as recruitment agents of the Service.
A statement by NAF’s spokesman, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, on Friday, maintained that the ongoing recruitment process was free and applicants are not required to pay money to anyone.
The statement read, ”Information reaching the NAF indicates that some unscrupulous individuals are extorting money from unsuspecting applicants/candidates under the false impression that they can guarantee their eventual recruitment into the Service in the ongoing 2019 NAF Recruitment Exercise.
”The NAF wishes to reiterate that the entire NAF Recruitment process is completely FREE OF CHARGE and executed in an equitable and transparent manner. Applicants are NOT required to pay money to anyone for any purpose throughout the process.
”Accordingly, the general public, and especially applicants, are strongly advised NOT to have any dealings with anyone demanding money as a guarantee for recruitment into the Service, as no applicant is required to make any payments to any individuals or bank accounts.
”The NAF, while taking action to apprehend the perpetrators of the illegal activities, wishes to advise applicants who are solicited to make any payments to promptly report such to the nearest NAF Unit, Nigeria Police Post or through the following phone numbers/email address.”
