The Central Bank of Nigeria has warned the general public to beware of fraudsters as it is not recruiting.
In a statement posted on its Twitter handle, CBN warned that the attention of the Bank had been drawn to ongoing rumour on social media that its branch in Owerri was recruiting.

A Twitter user replied that such an information could go round when there was an underground recruitment going on.
