The Department of State Services has warned members of the public against the activities of fraudsters as regards employment into the service.

A statement issued by an operative of the service, Mr Tony Opuiyo on Thursday in Abuja stated that it was not currently employing or carrying out any form of exercise in that regard.

Opuiyo said some fraudulent persons and groups were extorting money from unsuspecting members of the public with the promise to employ them into the service.

“The Service wishes to state for the umpteenth time that it is not currently employing or carrying out any form of exercise in that regard,” he said.

He said that the service does not charge money for the purpose of recruitment.

Opuiyo advised the public to be wary of these fraudulent persons and groups whose stock in trade remained the spread of falsehood and engagement in impersonation.

He warned that the Service would not hesitate to deal decisively in accordance with the law with anyone caught in the act of impersonating it. 

The official enjoined members of the public to pass relevant information relating to the nearest Service Command, while efforts were being sustained at uncovering the network of these fraudsters. (NAN)
