Operatives of the Ekiti State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) have arrested 14 persons for allegedly defrauding unsuspecting job seekers.

The state commandant of NSCDC, Mr Agboola Sunday, who paraded the suspects to newsmen in Ado Ekiti said they were arrested by the operatives of the Counter Terrorists Unit of the command.

The suspects, which included seven females, were said to be duping and extorting money from the innocent Nigerians under the pretext of securing job opportunities for them.

Agboola who revealed that they camped their victims at a location with the promise to provide employment for them assured that the matter will be thoroughly investigated.

The NSCDC boss said: “We have before me syndicates that specialise in duping people through employment scam. They invite some of them from other states and promise to give them employment, from there, they will kidnap and detain them.

“The case will be thoroughly investigated and make sure that the law takes it course as well as  get to the root of this crime.

“ I will advise members of the public to ensure they go to the right channels when looking for employment. All these online is somehow dubious because you don’t know who is who. Let them know the company they want to apply to or the organisation so that they will not fall victim to all these criminals.”

One of the victims who identified himself as Ayala Favour told journalists that he came from Ogbomoso in Oyo state to Ado-Ekiti for employment in the company named Quest Company through one of the agents who contacted him on Facebook.
