The National Centre for the Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons (NCCSALW) on Friday warned the public against fraudsters touting recruitment in the name of the centre.
Head, Strategic Communication, Office of The National Security Adviser, Mr Zakari Usman, gave the warning in a statement issued in Abuja.
Usman described the said recruitment targeted at unsuspecting members of the public as fraudulent and fake.
He said that NCCSALW was not recruiting currently and did not engage the services of any individual or recruitment agent to recruit on its behalf.
According to him, for the avoidance of doubt, the information on recruitment circulating on social media is “fake and did not emanate from the Centre’’.
“Job seekers are advised to disregard same. The public should also be informed that no government agency will demand for or receive payment for any employment.
“The NCCSALW by this notice hereby advises the general public to be wary of these fraudulent activities,’’ he stated.
METROWATCH is an online daily newspaper founded in October 2013 by a seasoned reporter, Collins Edomaruse. He had risen to the position of General Editor in his 18 years stint at THISDAY newspaper, an appointment he resigned on October 30, 2013 to pursue his online newspaper publishing dream. Prior to his appointment as the newspaper’s General Editor, he had served, at various times, as Editor, Nation’s Capital; Group News Editor, Associate Editor, and Deputy Editor at different times for the newspaper’s three titles – Daily, Sunday and Saturday.
Edomaruse had covered education, sports, energy, national security, defence and transport beats among others. As a defence correspondent, Edomaruse traversed the war zones of both Liberia and Sierra-Leone in the dark days of Charles Taylor and Foday Sanko as warlords, which earned him the sobriquet “General” by his colleagues in the newsroom.
METROWATCH will act as a catalyst in our debate and desire for a crime-free Nigeria and provide the much-needed platform for all, irrespective of social, religious or political divide, to express their views.
METROWATCH will strive to bring to the public domain issues of bad governance, dirty business, hostile neighborliness, security challenges and other crime issues that are always begging for attention in Nigeria.
We will pursue this course with every vigor in our drive for the TRUTH and FAIRNESS.
