From Godwin Tsa, Abuja.

The National Judicial Council (NJC),  has disowned an online advertisement in a website informing the general public that the Council has embarked on massive recruitment exercise.

NJC warned that the advertisement was not only false but fraudulent with the aim of those behind it to defraud innocent job seeking applicants.

In a statement on Wednesday in Abuja by it’s Director of Information, Mr. Soji Oye, the Council made it clear that it was not employing any category of workers and warned those seeking jobs not to fall into the traps of 419 website owners.

The statement read in part “The attention of the National Judicial Council has   been   drawn   to   a   false   advertisement purporting an  ongoing recruitment exercise  of the Council for the year 2022 on some websites, different   from   the   official   website   of   the National Judicial Council.


“The Council by this medium informs the general public that there is no such online recruitment as portrayed by the websites, neither is it currently

considering   any   recruitment   exercise   for   the time being.

“The   Council   noted   with   dismay   that   this recruitment advertisement is becoming a yearly recurrent decimal on such websites

“The   general   public   is   hereby   advised   against downloading   any   form   online,   sending   their CV’s or paying anyone for any recruitment.

“Applicants   are   hereby   advised   to   beware   of fraudsters parading their websites as recruitment platforms for the Council.

“The Council, when recruiting, will advertise on its official website,  http://www.njc.gov.ng  and not through any other website”, the statement said.
