Army alerts Nigerians on fake recruitment on social media
The Nigerian Army has distanced itself from the recruitment exercise currently trending on social media.
In a statement issued on Thursday by its Director of Public Relations, Brig.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, the army described the advertisement on the recruitment of candidates into its 83 Regular Recruit Intake as fake.
He said the information was false, misleading and aimed at defrauding unsuspecting members of the public.

“Please note that recruitment advertisements placed by the Nigerian army are usually published in national dailies.
“We advise members of the public to shun the portal in its entirety including the link to the fake portal in circulation which is: https://recruitment.army.mil.ng/darrr.”
