The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), yesterday, dismissed reports that it was recruiting workers and cautioned members of the public to be wary of fraudsters who are using the name of the agency to dupe unsuspecting desperate job seekers.

Director, Media and Advocacy, NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, who gave the warning, yesterday, in Abuja, said the agency was aware of a publication announcing that it was recruiting.

“While we are taking necessary measures to unravel the people behind the publication, members of the public are advised to avoid being scammed.

“The agency would like to emphasise that no recruitment is currently taking place. In due time, any information about recruitment will be shared on our website and our official social media platforms alone,” Babaemi stated.

Also, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) said it was not recruiting and cautioned potential job seekers against falling victims to scammers.

The Corps Public Education Officer (CPEO), Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM), Mr Jonas Agwu, in a statement, yesterday, in Abuja, said the clarification became necessary following desperate efforts by alleged fraudsters to scam unsuspecting job seekers or their sponsors.

He said: “This medium is to let the public know that the Corps is currently not recruiting, nor is there any ongoing arrangement to that effect.

The FRSC Corps Marshal, Dauda Ali-Biu, wishes to admonish applicants seeking to join the services of the Corps, as well as the general public, to disregard the fake and misleading publications.

“The public is by this publication warned to desist from any form of engagement with the purported scammers and purveyors of that misinformation, as the Corps will not be liable should anyone fall victim,“ he said.
