Nigerian Navy Disclaims Payment For Recruitment


The Nigerian Navy has refuted reports that syndicates operating in the name of Nigerian Navy are defrauding prospective candidates seeking recruitment into the force by directing them to pay N40,000 for placement in the on-going 2016 recruitment exercise.



    The Navy says those engaged in such dubious acts are criminal elements who do not represent the navy.

    A statement issued by Christian Ezekobe, Director of Information, advised, parents, guardians and candidates who have sought confirmation from the Nigerian Navy on this disturbing criminal extortion by the syndicates to be aware.

    “Therefore, after a thorough investigation, the Nigerian Navy is requesting parents, guardians, candidates and the general public to avoid being defrauded as nobody has been mandated, directed or authorized to collect money from any candidate in the course of the 2016 recruitment exercise.

    “The Nigerian Navy thereby reiterates that, as directed by the federal government, participation in the recruitment exercise remains FREE. No candidate is expected to make any form of payment for placement in the Nigerian Navy. However, the list of successful candidates which is being compiled will soon be released to the general public through appropriate channels of communication,”
