Recruitment Scam: NAF Alerts the Public of Fraudlent Social Media Accounts

Social media sharing



Information reaching the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) indicates that some unscrupulous individuals have established fraudulent Facebook and WhatsApp groups with the objective of extorting money from unsuspecting applicants/candidates under the false impression that they can guarantee them eventual recruitment into the Service in the 2020 NAF Trades/Non-Trades Men and Women Recruitment Exercise.

The NAF wishes to reiterate that the entire NAF Recruitment process is completely FREE OF CHARGE and executed in an equitable and transparent manner. Interested applicants, who meet the requirements published in the 10 July 2020 editions of the Nation and Daily Trust Newspapers as well as on all NAF official social media handles, are to apply online at the NAF official website,, from 24 July 2020 to 21 August 2020. Applicants are NOT required to pay money to anyone for any purpose throughout the process.

Accordingly, the general public, and especially applicants, are strongly advised NOT to join any such WhatsApp, Facebook or indeed any other social media groups and have no dealings with anyone demanding money as a guarantee for recruitment into the Service, as no applicant is required to make any payments to any individuals or bank accounts at any point during the recruitment process. The NAF, while taking action to apprehend the perpetrators of such illegal activities, wishes to advise applicants who are solicited to make any payments to promptly report such to the nearest NAF Unit, Nigeria Police Post/Office or through the following phone numbers/email address:

Phone numbers: 09064432351, 09055840142, 08053440802 (available Monday – Friday between 8:30AM and 5:30PM)


You are please requested to disseminate this information through your medium for the awareness of the general public. Thank you for your usual cooperation.
