The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has for the umpteenth time, refuted reports that the agency is recruiting.
Spokesman for the commission, Wilson Uwujaren, disclosed this in a statement issued on Monday.
This is not the first time the EFCC would be refuting such reports.
SWITCH NIGERIA recalls that on the 16th of January, the commission had denied similar report.
Uwujaren said the attention of the anti-graft agency was drawn to the activities of a group on WhatsApp, dedicated to EFCC Recruitment 2020/2021.
He said briefly, “The commission wishes to dissociate itself from the activities of the Group, which is not known to the EFCC.
“For the umpteenth time, the commission reiterates earlier pronouncements that the agency is currently not recruiting. Any publication or advertorial to the contrary, in the social or mainstream media, can only be the handiwork of scammers.”
The EFCC spokesman called on members of the public to be circumspect to avoid being ensnared by fraudsters.
According to him, “employment into the EFCC is not an under-the-table affair, as such exercise is usually preceded by elaborate advertorial in the media and commission’s social media platforms.
“The public is also to treat with caution, fraud alert messages on WhatsApp, ascribed to the EFCC Help Desk Headquarters Jabi, Abuja.”
He maintained that such messages are not from the EFCC as the commission has no “Help Desk”.
