Worried by the handiwork of scammers, the Nigerian Army has distanced itself from alleged release of successful candidates for 83 Regular Recruit Intake.
It said that the claim was false as it warned unsuspecting public to be wary of such scammers.
A statement issued on Thursday by the Director Army Public Relations,
Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, gave the information. It was made available to Security Watch Africa (SWA).
It said “The Nigerian Army (NA) has been notified of a fake portal making the rounds online, allegedly claiming that the NA has released the list of successful candidates for 83 Regular Recruit Intake(RRI).
“The said publication is outrightly fraudulent and a handiwork of online scammers who are hell bent on defrauding unsuspecting members of the public.
“Members of the general public are please enjoined to note that the portal for 83 RRI was opened on the 7 March, 2022 and is still ongoing.
“It will be closed officially on Friday, 13 May 2022. Therefore, the publication currently being circulated in online and social media is fake and should be disregarded in its entirety,” it added.
