20 March 2015, 09:00Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Officers of the Aviation Security Service at the Murtala Muhammed Airport Lagos have arrested a male suspect for handing over a forged letter of employment to an unsuspecting applicant.

Yakubu Dati, General Manager Corporate Affairs of Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), confirmed the arrest.

According to Dati, the suspect has been handed over to the police at the airport.

He warned applicants against giving money to fraudulent individuals as the FAAN did not demand money from any applicant to get employed.

“It has been brought to the notice of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) that some fraudulent individuals are demanding that applicants to the recently advertised vacant positions in FAAN pay money into some bank account in order to "influence" their employment into the Authority," Dati said.

He said the authority wished to inform the public, especially applicants to the said vacant positions, that the agency did not demand money from any applicant to get employed.

"The current recruitment exercise is being done in the most transparent and orderly manner so we advise that nobody should pay any amount of money to any individual or company to get employed in the Authority,” Dati said.

He advised affected applicants to report such fraudulent proposition to the police.

"The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria will not be held responsible for any fraudulent transaction in relation to the ongoing recruitment exercise in the Authority."
