The Nigerian Army has reacted to publication and messages on social media requesting members of the general public to apply for Direct Short Service.
Director, Army Public Relations, Brig.-Gen. Texas Chukwu, in a statement Wednesday night, stated that the information did not emanate from the Nigerian Army rather it is the handy work of fraudsters trying to obtain money from unsuspecting members of the public.
“The Army also wishes to reiterate that the advertisement for Commission into the NA could not be placed in any social media platforms nor given a time frame of only four days for interested candidates to apply.
“Once again, the Army wishes to disassociate itself from the said advertisement and advised members of the general public to beware of the fraudsters trying to dupe unsuspecting applicants.
“Furthermore, the Nigerian Army will inform the general public through the appropriate quarters when the need arises.
“Those involved in such criminal acts are advised to desist from it in their own interest,” he said.
