The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has raised an alarm against a criminal employment syndicate operating from Akure, Ondo state.
According to the spokesperson of the Board, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the faceless organisation has deceived some Nigerians into believing that they have been contracted to recruit staff on behalf of JAMB.
Benjamin in his statement in Abuja on Thursday said JAMB is not recruiting and if it was, it won’t be through a social media account as the criminals are doing.
“The attention of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has been drawn to the unwholesome activities of an employment syndicate operating in Akure, Ondo State, which claims to have been contracted to recruit staff for the Board using a dedicated social media account.
“The syndicate, operating under ‘Akure Job and Business Advert Forum’, located at Quarters 92 Alagbaka Estate, Near CBN Office, IBB Avenue, Akure, Ondo State, is using the name of JAMB, Ondo State Office, to advertise job vacancies into secretarial and clerical positions in the Board.
“The board, is by this disclaimer, advising all members of the public to disregard such information as it is currently not recruiting in any of its offices nor has it contracted anyone or organisation to do so on its behalf.
“Anybody doing business with the above-mentioned platform or similar ones does so at his/her own risk. Furthermore, stiff legal actions will be taken against anyone found culpable of such nefarious acts,” Benjamin said.
Benjamin however adviced that the general public should disregard any prompts from the syndicate, as the Board only make notifications through its approved channels.
