The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has advised the public to beware of fake and fraudulent admission notification currently circulating on various social media platforms.
This advice which is contained in a statement released by the Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, states, “The originator of the purported admission nomination into “ND/HND programmes” at the NAF College of Nursing (NAFCON) directs unsuspecting applicants to pay a non-refundable fee of N15,500 at the “Office of the Registrar”. To perpetrate his unlawful act, this particular fraudster went further to provide phone numbers, email address and a website as follows; 08123366242, 08084683594; email@example.com; aabadmus.com.ng”.
The statement continues, “It is disheartening that despite repeated warnings by the NAF, some members of the public still fall prey to the unwholesome and nefarious activities of fraudsters and con men who swindle them of their hard-earned money for admissions that do not exist”.
Air Commodore Gabkwet averred that the NAF is frantically making efforts to track and identify this particular fraudster and others to bring them to justice.
The Air Force spokesperson emphatically added that the NAFCON has not commenced or advertised for any admission into ND or HND Nursing at the College.
He advised the general public that, “Information regarding admission into ND General Nursing programme at NAFCON would be communicated to the general public through the NAF website, www.airforce.mil.ng and other verified NAF official social media platforms. Members of the public are hereby advised to disregard any advert placement circulating in the social media on admission into NAFCON”.
