The Nigerian Air force high command has warned members of the public against fake admission into its school of medical sciences and aviation medicine.
Spokesman of the Air force, Commodore Ayodele Famuyiwa who gave the warning said: “The attention of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has been drawn to a spurious and fraudulent online notification of admission into National Diploma/Higher National Diploma (ND/HND) Nursing Programmes for the 2023/2024 Academic Session at NAF School of Medical Sciences and Aviation Medicine (NAFSMSAM), Kaduna.
“The advert signed by an impostor, Air Commodore Anike Obinna, is asking unsuspecting members of the public to pay a non-refundable fee of N15,000.00 for the purchase of admission form. The fraudster also provided two fake telephone numbers 07047290540 and 09169461866 for enquiries in an effort to legitimize the illicit act.
“The NAF wishes to inform the public that it has nothing to do with the person or claims by the fraudster. The Service is yet to commence admission process into ND/HND programmes at NAFSMSAM and has not authorised any agent or third party to advertise or collect money on its behalf for such things.
“Admission into ND/HND Nursing programmes is conducted by the NAF College of Nursing Sciences through the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB). Information regarding admission into ND/HND programmes at NAFCONS will be communicated to the general public in due course through the College official website www.nafcons.edu.ng.
“Therefore, members of the public are advised to disregard the said advert currently being circulated on social media platforms as anyone involved does so at his/her risk.”
