January 8 Aptitude Test Notice Fake, NSCDC Warns Applicants

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, has notified the public to disregard what it calls an “erroneously crafted” recruitment notice allegedly advertised by the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Services Board, CDCFIB.

A statement on Thursday by the Corps’ Public Relations Officer, DCC Olusola Odumosu, says that the recently advertised NSCDC 2022 recruitment exercise had circulated in the media and on various social media platforms and WhatsApp groups.

According to the fake message, the Computer Based Aptitude Test (CBAT) for recruitment into the NSCDC was billed to hold on the 8th of January, 2023 in the 36 States of the federation and FCT.

The message said, NSCDC also advised shortlisted candidates for the CDCFIB Computer-Based Aptitude Test to start checking their email addresses/phones for their Exam Centres notifications as from midday.

Meanwhile, Odumosu stated clearly that the message was “fake, misleading and a calculated attempt by fraudsters and cyber criminals to take advantage of recruitment process in order to extort unsuspecting applicants of their monies by causing panic and creating unnecessary tension”.

He therefore, warned members of the public and desperate job seekers not to fall victims of extortion and job scams through the grandiose attempt by job racketeers to misinform and confuse them into parting with their hard earned money in the name of helping to shortlist them for the Aptitude Test and getting placement in NSCDC .

The NSCDC PRO also sent a strong warning to the elements behind the fake news, disclosing that, the Corps’ cyber experts have been directed by the Commandant General, Dr Ahmed Abubakar Audi, to go after the master minds of the fake information, and expressing confidence that they would be fished out sooner than later, and made to face the fill wrath of the law.

Odumosu further reiterated that the Corps’ recruitments, enlistment and promotion exercises are coordinated and supervised by the CDCFIB under the chairmanship of the Minister of Interior, Ogeni Rauf Aregbesola.

He enjoined the public to remain calm and patient for the authentic update and information on the recruitment process, as “all updates with regards to the 2022 recruitment exercise would be published officially and made available to the public by the Board in due course”.
