Beware of fake admission notifications, NAF warns general public

By Kalu Nwokoro Idika

The Nigerian Air Force has vehemently refuted the claim that it is presently conducting admittance into the NAF college of nursing.

In a statement made available to newsmen by the Director of Public Relations & Information, Edward Gabkwet said the purported admission into the NAF college of nursing is not true.

Gabkwet further said that despite repeated warnings by the NAF concerning the activities of these unscrupulous elements, some members of the public still fall prey to the unwholesome and nefarious activities of these con men who swindle them of their hard-earned money for admissions that do not exist.

He however, warned the general public to disregard the news as efforts are being made to apprehend the criminals behind the fraudulent recruitment.

The statement read, “The attention of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has been drawn to a fake and fraudulent admission notification currently circulating on various social media platforms. The originator of the purported admission nomination into “ND/HND programmes” at the NAF College of Nursing (NAFCON) directs unsuspecting applicants to pay a non-refundable fee of N15,500 at the “Office of the Registrar”. To perpetrate his unlawful act, this particular fraudster went further to provide phone numbers, email address and a website as follows;08123366242, 08084683594; forceeducationunit@yahoo.com; aabadmus.com.ng.

“It is disheartening that despite repeated warnings by the NAF, some members of the public still fall prey to the unwholesome and nefarious activities of fraudsters and con men who swindle them of their hard-earned money for admissions that do not exist.

“While the NAF is frantically making efforts to track and identify this particular fraudster and others to bring them to justice, the NAF wishes to state that currently, the NAFCON has not commenced or advertised for any admission into ND or HND Nursing at the College.

“The general public should also be informed that so far, the National Board for Technical Education has approved only the ND programme in General Nursing for the College, which is yet to be advertised.

“Accordingly, information regarding admission into ND General Nursing programme at NAFCON would be communicated to the general public through the NAF website, www.airforce.mil.ng and other verified NAF official social media platforms. Members of the public are hereby advised to disregard any advert placement circulating in the social media on admission into NAFCON.
