    Fake job recruiter in NDLEA net in Ibadan

    The chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Ahmadu Giade has drawn the attention of applicants to illegal websites calling for application for eligible candidates stressing that the Agency is currently not recruiting.

    Giade called on members of the public to beware of the activities of criminals who sell fake recruitment forms and extort money under false pretext. He dismissed claims of on-going internal recruitment and vehicle auction sales.

     According to Giade, “NDLEA is not conducting recruitment and vehicle auction sales. This is a calculated move to defraud unsuspecting applicants.
     Members of the public should please watch out for those who claim to be selling NDLEA forms and report to the nearest command of the Agency.
    We have received reports of fake websites advertising NDLEA recruitment. Some of the fraudsters had been apprehended by the Agency following complaints by some victims who were duped”.

    He urged members of the public to endeavour to visit any NDLEA office closest to them to verify any claim before committing resources to avoid being swindled. 

    Giade also warned that the Agency will prosecute anyone found to be involved in defrauding innocent citizens under the guise of NDLEA recruitment or vehicle auction sales.
    A thirty-nine year-old man, Adewunmi Ajide Olayinka  who parades himself as NDLEA staff by extorting money from unsuspecting victims and promising them employment and auction vehicles has been apprehended.

    The suspect, Adewunmi Ajide Olayinka also known as Adewunmi Adeyinka Siaka collects between seventeen thousand five hundred (N17,500) and forty thousand naira (N40,000) from members of the public. 
    He also extorted the sum of six hundred and eighty thousand naira (N680,000) from another victim whom he promised to assist in  the purchase of two NDLEA auction vehicles and employment of his son.

    NDLEA investigation revealed that Adewunmi had defrauded many victims under the guise of helping them to secure employment with the Agency. 
    The tide turned against him when ten victims visited the Ibadan office of the Agency requesting for information about the next batch of training at the NDLEA Academy in Jos slated for December 2014. Adewunmi was eventually traced and arrested at a private location in Ibadan.
     Items recovered from him include curriculum vitae of applicants, Nigeria Immigration Service recruitment form and his international passport with the name Adewunmi Adeyinka Siaka.

    NDLEA Oyo State Commander, Mrs. Omolade Faboyede stated that she was surprised when some of the victims came to the command asking for the details of training for newly recruited staff.
     “We were shocked when we received complaints from some of the victims who came to the office to find out details about their training. That was how we commenced investigation and in the process the suspect was apprehended.
     In the course of interrogation, we got another complaint from a man who paid N680,000 for the employment of his son and purchase of two auction vehicles from the Abuja office of the NDLEA.
    Let me use this opportunity to call on whoever has paid money for employment to contact the nearest NDLEA office for a follow up investigation” Omolade stated.

    According to the suspect who holds an Ordinary National Diploma (OND) in Business Administration, it was joblessness that compelled him into the criminal act.

    “I told a man that I work with the NDLEA and that I can assist his son get job through on-going internal recruitment. He then gave me N40,000 naira and I discovered that it was easy for people to pay money for recruitment.
    That was how it all started. It was joblessness that made me to do it because I was selling Nigeria films in Abuja until I lost my shop and residential accommodation.
    I also collected money from a man that I will help him to buy Toyota Sienna and Toyota Camry at a very cheap price during NDLEA auction sales in Abuja. Some people paid money into my bank account while others paid cash.
    Now that I am arrested I feel bad and I advise others defrauding people to quit the criminal act because they will be arrested someday” Adewunmi who hails from Ila-Orogun, Osun State stated.
