The statement in full:
ALLEGED EMPLOYMENT SCAM BY AN AIDE TO THE MINISTER OF INTERIOR
The Service is in receipt of a trending media report that one Babangida Tanko who claimed to be an aide to the Minister of Interior Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, is involved in employment racketeering.
The report alleged that the said Mr. Tanko collected sums of money from unsuspecting members of the public with the promise of securing job placements for them into the Service.
The acting Comptroller General of Immigration Isah Jere Idris wishes to use this medium to state that Mr. Babangida Tanko though a Personnel of the Service, is not an aide to the Minister of Interior and so the alleged actions do not represent what the Service or Ministry stands for. He has ordered an investigation into the allegation with a view to unraveling his level of culpability for necessary disciplinary actions.
He therefore, wishes to reiterate that recruitment exercises into the Service are usually publicized in the media including the Service’s website. Interested applicants are required to apply via a dedicated online platform and due selection processes including computer-based examination and physical screening conducted before successful candidates are formally notified.
The public is hereby enjoined to discountenance any promises for job placements into the Service by anyone to avoid being swindled by criminal elements who are out there to deceive unsuspecting members of the public.
