The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has warned the public to ignore the trending online fake alert on a recruitment screening exercise by the agency.
The spokesman for the FRSC, Bisi Kazeem, gave the warning in a statement on Friday in Abuja.
Mr Kazeem said that the FRSC’s attention was drawn to the fake news making rounds that the corps’ recruitment screening would start from September 24 to 29.
“The corps, by this medium, warns the public to shun all false alerts regarding job screening exercise by the corp.
“The exercise had already been conducted on September 6 and concluded on September 12,” said the statement.
It urged applicants and the public to avoid desperate moves that might lure them into the snare of deceitful people.
“The corps expressly disown all liability for extortion of any form arising from patronising these fraudsters or reliance on any information contained in the social media pages they are using to spread this misinformation,” the FRSC added. “The public is hereby enjoined to visit www.frsc.gov.ng, www.facebook.com/FRSC Nigeria or www.instagram.com/FRSCNigeria or the National Traffic Radio 107.1 FM for any publication from the FRSC.”
He further explained that the public should contact the agency through a toll-free line 122 for any valid information.
