The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has warned members of the public against falling victim to fake and fraudulent admission notification for ND/HND programmes into the NAF College of Nursing (NAFCON).
NAF’s Director of Public Relations & Information Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet in a statement Wednesday, said NAFCON has not commenced or advertised for any admission into ND or HND Nursing at the College.
He said NAF is frantically making efforts to track and identify the fraudster and others to bring them to justice.
The statement reads in parts: “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; email@example.com; aabadmus.com.g.
“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.”
