Nigeria Immigration probes personnel accused of employment racketeering
The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has commented on the indictment of an official, Babangida Tanko, who is suspected of employment racketeering.
He reportedly took money from unsuspecting members of the public with the promise of finding them work.
Amos Okpu, the NIS Public Relations Officer, stated that while Tanko is a personnel, he is not an adviser to Interior Minister Rauf Aregbesola.
In a statement, the spokesman stated that his actions do not reflect what the Service or Ministry stands for.
Okpu revealed that interim Comptroller General Isah Jere has launched a disciplinary investigation.
The NIS told Nigerians that recruitment exercises are usually publicized in the media and on the Service’s website.
The statement said applicants who apply and participate in processes including computer-based examination and physical screening are formally notified.
“The public is hereby enjoined to discountenance any promises for job placements into the Service by anyone to avoid being swindled by criminal elements”, Okpu added.
