The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on Wednesday warned the public against fraudsters claiming to be recruiting on behalf of the agency.
Mr Mitchell Ofoyeju, Head of Public Affairs, NDLEA, gave the warning in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
Ofoyeju said that the agency does not recruit its officers secretly, noting, however, that many innocent people had been victims of such fraudsters.
“We are not recruiting yet. If we want to do so, we do it openly. The public should beware of fraudsters claiming to be NDLEA recruiting agents.
“Unfortunately, many people have been duped by these fraudsters. Some victims claimed they paid between N30,000 and N70,000 to them.
“People should always ask questions from those in authority before applying for anything,” Ofoyeju warned.
