The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) has alerted the general public, especially applicants of 72 Regular Course of the existence of fraudulent syndicate purportedly claiming to be admission officers of the Academy.
According to a Press Release signed by Major Abubakar Abdullahi, Academy Public Relations Officer, these fraudsters print various fake admission letters to candidates requesting for a pay with a view to gaining admission into the Academy.
The Release was made available to Jungle Journalist Media Ltd via electronic email.
The Academy therefore strongly advised the public to disregard such letters.
It said “Such letters were not initiated by the NDA. Hence, the general public should note that selection into NDA is by merit not pay.
“The NDA use only mainstream media, its official website (www.nda.edu.ng) and its social media channels on Facebook and Twitter (DefenceAcademyNG and HQ_NDA respectively) to dessiminate public information. NDA will never direct you to call any phone number for admission or payment.
“The general public is therefore advised not to fall prey or have any dealings with said admission frausters. You are to report the activities of such frausters to the nearest Military or Police Unit”, Major Abdullahi stated.
