The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has said it is yet to commence acceptance of admissions into National Diploma/Higher National Diploma (ND/HND) Nursing Programmes for the 2023/2024 Academic Session at its School of Medical Sciences and Aviation Medicine in Kaduna.
The institute’s Director, Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ayodele Famuyiwa, in a statement on Tuesday, stated this in response to an online advert for admission which called on interested persons to purchase the school’s admission form for a non-refundable fee of N15,000.00.
Famuyiwa said the advert signed by an ‘impostor, Air Commodore Anike Obinna’, was fake.
The fraudster, Famuyiwa said, also provided two fake telephone numbers 07047290540 and 09169461866 for inquiries.
The statement reads in part:
“The NAF wishes to inform the public that it has nothing to do with the person or claims by the fraudster.
“The Service is yet to commence the admission process into ND/HND programmes at NAFSMSAM and has not authorised any agent or third party to advertise or collect money on its behalf for such things.
“Admission into ND/HND Nursing programmes is conducted by the NAF College of Nursing Sciences through the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB). Also, Information regarding admission into ND/HND programmes at NAFCONS will be communicated to the general public in due course through the College official website www.nafcons.edu.ng.”
The director advised members of the public to disregard the advert currently being circulated on social media platforms.
