The All Progressives Congress has challenged the nation’s security agencies as well as telecommunications service providers to help it fish out those seeking to defraud Nigerians by asking them to apply for federal appointments under the incoming APC federal government through a non-existent APC Screening Committee.
In a statement in Abuja Tuesday, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed said, “These ‘419ners’ have a telephone number,08107400745, an email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and a front (Dr. Favour Idiodie), who is supposedly the Screening Committee Secretary. It should therefore not be difficult for the security agencies, working with the service providers, to fish them out and to make them face the full wrath of the law.
“As we wrote in our earlier statement, even when it is obvious that those behind this appointment scam are merely seeking to swindle innocent Nigerians, some desperate and gullible persons may still fall prey to their evil machinations, hence we have decided to once again alert Nigerians,” the party said
The party said any information concerning appointments into federal posts will be duly communicated to Nigerians at the appropriate time through the usual communication channels.
