The leadership of the Nigeria Immigration Service has come out to clear the air on the trending media report about one Babangida Tanko who is claiming to be an aide to the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.
With this, he has been collecting huge sums of money from unsuspecting members of the public with the promise of securing job placements for them into Nigeria Immigration Service.
In a press statement e-signed and released to the National Association of Online Security News Publishers, NAOSNP by the Service PRO, Assistant Comptroller of Immigration, Amos Okpu noted: “The acting Comptroller General of Immigration Isah Jere Idris wishes to use this medium to state that Mr. Babangida Tanko though a Personnel of the Service, is not an aide to the Minister of Interior and so the alleged actions do not represent what the Service or Ministry stands for.”
NAOSNP can reliably inform that the acting CG Isah Jere Idris has therefore ordered an investigation into the allegation. This is with a view to unraveling Mr. Tanko’s level of culpability for necessary disciplinary actions.
‘The public is hereby enjoined to discountenance any promises for job placements into the Service by anyone to avoid being swindled by criminal elements who are out there to deceive unsuspecting members of the public’, the CG warned.
The press statement shared the right process of recruitment into the Service, ‘recruitment exercises into the Service are usually publicized in the media including the Service’s website. Interested applicants are required to apply via a dedicated online platform and due selection processes including computer-based examination and physical screening conducted before successful candidates are formally notified’.
