The Director of Information, Naval Headquarters, Cdr Suleman Dahun, who gave the warning in a statement on Monday, in Abuja, said for the avoidance of doubt, the list was fake and did not emanate from the NN headquarters.

The director, therefore, advised Nigerians to treat the list as ”a pitiable ploy of mischief makers and idle minds intent on creating ill feelings amongst the Nigerian public thereby stoking sectional and religious sensibilities.”

He added that the NN was currently exploring legal means of seeking redress over the mischievous story.

Dahun advised members of the public to visit for authentic information on NN recruitment exercises. (NAN)
