The Nigerian Defence Academy has come out to alert the general public, most especially applicants of the 72 Regular Course of fraudsters who pose to be admission officers of the Academy.
Major Abubakar Abdullahi, the Academy’s Public Relations Officer said in a statement issued on Saturday in Kaduna, that;
“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.”
Explaining further, he said that the NDA makes use of the mainstream media, official website www.nda.edu.ng, and social media channels on Facebook and Twitter, DefenceAcademyNG, and HQ_NDA respectively, to disseminate information to the general public. To this end, he said;
“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,”
