The National Intelligence Agency (NIA) has clarified that it is not recruiting.
It lamented the activities of scammers on social media sites, purporting that the agency was conducting a 2018/19 recruitment exercise for qualified Nigerians.
A statement by its spokesman, S.M. Lamidi, on Thursday appealed to members of the public to avoid being swindled.
“The authors of this fake social media sites, offering easy employment into the Agency, are not only mischievous but fraudulent targeting innocent Nigerians”, he said.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the NIA states unequivocally that such posts are the handiwork of fraudsters and does not have anything to do with the service.
“The Agency, therefore, calls on all Nigerians to ignore the information contained in the sites and not have any dealings with these syndicates.
“Recruitment into the NIA is done through a transparent and rigorous process which is open to all Nigerians,” he added.
