Abuja - The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is seeking the arrest and possible prosecution of culprits that have set up a fake website claiming to be recruiting workers for the commission.

“INEC has already invited the security agencies to uncover and apprehend the sponsors of the recruitment portal,” Kayode Idowu, the electoral body’s Chief Press Secretary, stated.

IdoWu warned the public against the fake recruitment scheme (INEC) has been drawn to a recruitment portal purporting to conduct massive nationwide recruitment 2013 for the Commission,”
He said portal was not genuine and was not put up by INEC.

“This is to alert the public that the portal is phony, and was not put up by INEC. The Commission is not conducting any massive recruitment at the moment, and the sponsors of the said portal are apparently out to hoodwink and defraud the public,” said Idowu.

He advised prospective applicants to shun the portal in order to avoid falling victim to the fraudulent scheme.

“Meanwhile, prospective applicants are strongly advised to shun the portal, so as not to get defrauded.”
