The Nigerian Navy (NN) has raised the alarm over fake recruitment agencies parading as agencies under the directive of the Navy.
This is just as the NN cautioned members of the public to be wary of the activities of the fake syndicates, which specialised in extorting money from intending recruits who had applied to join the service.
Issuing the advisory, the Director of Navy Information, Commodore Kabir Aliyu, also cautioned members of the public to desist from patronising any syndicate, noting that the NN had its way of conducting its recruitment exercise.
He regretted that some fraudulent Nigerians were cashing in on the situation in the country to defraud innocent Nigerians.
The existence, according to him, of such syndicates, claiming to be carrying out recruitment exercise on behalf of the Navy, was illegal and had no mandate of the NN.
