The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) on Monday said the list purporting to be the official selection list for the 75 Regular Course of the Academy is fake.
The Academy’s Public Relations officer, Major Victor Olukoya said in a statement in Kaduna that “The attention of the NDA has been drawn to a fake list that has gone viral on some social media and other microblogging platforms, purporting to be the official selection list for 75 Regular Course of the Nigerian Defence Academy.
“We wish to clarify that the list is not only fake but also the work of fraudsters, whose aim may be to fleece unsuspecting law-abiding members of the public of their resources.”
He warned members of the public to steer clear of this fake publication and the publishers of this fake list.
According to him, their primary motive is to mislead and defraud members of the public, therefore anyone dealing with them does so at his or her own risk.
He noted that the process of selecting members of 75 Regular Course of the academy is rigorous and thorough, and is still ongoing.
“When completed, the authentic list will be officially published by the academy in some national newspapers and on the NDA official website: www.nda.edu.ng,” he said.
