The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has dissociated itself from the activities of a group on WhatsApp, calling for recruitment into the commission.
A statement signed by Mr Wilson Uwujaren, Head, Media & Publicity of the Commission, stated that the commission was not currently recruiting.
In the same vein, the commission advised the public to be circumspect to avoid being ensnared by fraudsters.
The statement reads, “The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to the activities of a group on WhatsApp, dedicated to EFCC Recruitment 2020/2021. 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 public is hereby advised to be circumspect to avoid being ensnared by fraudsters. 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. Such messages are not from the EFCC as the Commission has no “Help Desk”.”
