New twist yesterday unfolds as victims of fake Edo recruitment scam recounts how they were meant to part with all manner cash for employment.
The job seekers stated that among fees demanded from them include N2,000 for rank, N2, 000, for Identity card, examination fee N500, uniform N15, 000 among others.
This revelation is coming as the state government in a statement yesterday distanced itself from the illegal activities of the consulting firm, KAI Environmental and ordered security agents to go after agency.
Meanwhile, as at the time of filing in this report the venue of the recruitment centre (Bin Hotel) located along Ekenwa road had been deserted by lodgers for fear of arrest by security agents.
The firm had earlier claimed that it have the nod of the Edo State government to embark on the recruitment for the Ministry of Environment and Sustainability, an allegation the ministry had debunked.
The special adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr Crusoe Osagie, said the state government is working with security organisations to bring the perpetrators to justice.
“We received a report that KAI Environmental, a consulting firm, has been defrauding unsuspecting Edo people and residents by posing as a recruitment agency for the Edo State government.
“We have informed the police and other relevant security agencies to arrest the people behind the scam and bring them to justice,” Osagie said.
He explained that “EdoJobs is the only platform that recruits workers for the Edo State government,”.
and advised that “any other company that parades itself as a recruitment body or company for Edo State is out to scam job seekers”.
He warned that “the Obaseki administration does not collect money for jobs. We have digitised and centralised the process of giving jobs to qualified people in the state and all that is required of job seekers is to simply upload their applications on the EdoJobs portal, and they will be contacted by officials of government. Job seekers should be circumspect and report any organisation that parades itself as a recruitment company for the state government to security agencies”.
One of the victims, Nosa Isibor, who was in shock at the disclosure said he has paid about N20, 000 to the firm with a promise to get them job with the ministry of Environment
