The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), Kaduna has warned the general public, particularly those that applied for the 72 Regular Course against a fraudulent syndicate claiming to be admission officers of the Academy.
The Public Relations Officer of the school, Major Abubakar Abdullahi said this in a statement issued on Saturday in Kaduna. He said the gang has been requesting for money in exchange for admission into the academy.
Abdullahi said that the syndicate also prints fake admission letters and issue them to candidates after collecting money.
“The Academy strongly advises the public to disregard such letters. Such letters were not initiated by the NDA, hence the general public should note that selection into NDA is by merit not pay.”
He said the academy’s channels of communication to the public include the mainstream media, its official website www.nda.edu.ng, and social media channels on Facebook and Twitter, DefenceAcademyNG, and HQ_NDA respectively.
“Therefore, NDA will never direct you to call any phone number for admission or payment.
“The general public is therefore advised not to fall prey or have any dealings with the said admission fraudsters.
“You are to report the activities of such fraudsters to the nearest military or police unit,” he said.
