The Nigerian Navy says it has not announced Direct Short Service Commission (DSSC) Enlistment Exercise or contemplating to conduct any form of enlistment for the NN officer cadre.
The Service says in a signed statement by the Director of Information, Commodore Adedotun Ayo-Vaughan made available to Channel Network Afrique, CNA says its attention has been drawn to a fraudulent online advertisement on the enlistment exercise for Direct Short Service Commission (DSSC) into the Nigerian Navy (NN) captioned: Nigerian Navy DSSC
Recruitment 2023/2024 Application Form Portal www.joinnigerianavy.com.
The Service dismissed the said publication for interested applicants to visit https://www.topnigerianjobs.com/nigeria-dssc-recruitment/ claiming that the DSSC Recruitment 2023 portal is currently opened for online application.
The criminals in the statement claimed that applicants will be intimated on the opening and closing dates for the 2023/2024 Nigerian Navy DSSC Recruitment.
According to Adedotun Ayo-Vaughan, they further mentioned that detailed information, guidelines and other requirements that will assist applicants in the application process had been provided, invariably cajoling unsuspecting individuals to login into the fake website.
The Service insisted that contrary to the false statement provided by the unscrupulous swindlers regarding the non – disclosure of the opening and closing dates of the Exercise, the NN will always provide details and phases of the entire Exercise when publicized,he said
The Naval authorities however advised members of the public especially would-be applicants to always verify information from the NN official website stated above and other official NN social media handles to avoid falling prey to fraudsters.
The spokesman noted that for avoidance of doubt, the NN will usually notify the public through its official website www.nigeriannavy.mil.ng and other credible verifiable platforms including main stream media for the advertisement of such Enlistment Exercise.
