NDA denies ‘selection list’

The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) has disowned a list on the social media and other media platforms purporting to be official selection list for 75 regular course, saying they are fake.

A statement by the spokesperson of the Academy, Major Victor Olukoya said the list, which has been published on several social media platforms, is not only fake, but the handiwork of fraudsters with the aim of deceiving law-abiding members of the public and swindling them of their resources.

The statement warned members of the public to stay clear of the fake publication and the publishers, stressing that anyone dealing with them does so at their own risk.

It added that the process of selecting members of 75 regular course of the Academy is rigorous, thorough and still ongoing, and that when completed, the authentic list will be officially published by the Academy in some national dailies and on the NDA official website on www.nda.edu.ng
