The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) alerts the general public, especially applicants of 72 Regular Course of the existence of fraudulent syndicate purportedly claiming to be admission officers of the Academy, according to Major Abubakar Abdullahi, Academy Public Relations Officer.
These fraudsters print various fake admission letters to candidates requesting for a pay with a view to gaining admission into the Academy.
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. The NDA use only mainstream media, its official website (www.nda.edu.ng) and its social media channels on facebook and twitter (DefenceAcademyNG and HQ_NDA respectively) to dessiminate public information.
Abdullahi, said thenNDA will never direct anyone to call any phone number for admission or payment and therefore advised the public not to fall prey or have any dealings with said admission frausters.
He also advised the public to report the activities of such frausters to the nearest Military or Police Unit.
