NIS raises alarm over fake recruitment advertisements

Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) on Thursday wared the general public to be aware of fake recruitment advertisements.

The Service Public Relations Officer, on behalf of Comptroller General of Immigration, DCI Kenneth Udo in a statement said the Comptroller General of Immigration, Kemi Nanna Nandap has been drawn to a fraudulent Nigeria Immigration recruitment advertisement circulating on unauthorized websites.

The statement noted that these deceptive schemes are targeting unsuspecting Nigerians, posing a significant threat to their financial and personal security.

The statement posted on X (former Twitter) said, “The NIS vehemently dissociates itself from these illegitimate recruitment activities and urges the public to exercise caution. There is currently no ongoing recruitment process within the Service. Any claims suggesting otherwise are false and should be disregarded.

“The authentic Nigeria Immigration Service recruitment exercises are exclusively advertised through reputable national dailies, television broadcasts, and our official website: Importantly, participation in these legitimate processes is entirely free of charge.”

The statement noted that the Comptroller General of Immigration urged the general public to remain vigilant and refrain from engaging with fraudulent recruitment schemes.

“Any suspected instances of fraud should be promptly reported to the Nigeria Immigration Service through the following official channels:

The NIS remains committed to safeguarding the interests of Nigerians and maintaining the integrity of its recruitment processes. We urge all citizens to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities promptly,” the statement added.
