The State Security Services, DSS, says it has arrested one Kelvin Nwanaji in Lagos, who opened a Facebook Account in the name of the Director General of the SSS.
In a statement by DSS spokesperson, Tony Opuiyo, in Abuja on Friday, he said, “The suspect has been using the account to defraud unsuspecting members of the public who he promised jobs in the service”
He said that the arrest of the suspect was the sequel to an investigation arising from the misinformation in the social media that the service was recruiting.
“It is in this regard that the service wishes to inform the public to disregard the falsehood as it is not currently engaged in any recruitment. It should be noted that employment into the service is conducted in the most transparent manner in line with laid down procedures and processes. While the public is advised to be wary of fraudsters who may use this opportunity to extort money from them, the Service demands that news about recruitment be disregarded in its entirety,” he added.
