The Nigerian Army has denied claims in the social media that it was recruiting, urging the general to disregard some advertisements on social media platforms requesting for applications.
In a statement by the Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka Usman, he noted that, "The attention of the Nigerian Army is drawn to activities of a fraudulent syndicate that has placed fake adverts to deceive unsuspecting members of the public on alleged commissioning into the Nigerian Army.
"The group specifically used Facebook and other Social Media platforms to entice interested persons and thereafter solicited for token payments into a certain bank account.
"The public is please requested to disregard such advertisements on the Social Media as the Nigerian Army is not recruiting at this moment.
"Members of the public are please enjoined to report such fraudulent groups to the nearest security agency or better still, contact the information Nigerian Army Call Centre on 193 using any of the networks."
