Officials of the Nigerian Navy on Wednesday arrested and paraded a self-acclaimed military Cornel.
Eye9ja understands that the military Cornel was arrested for his involvement in duping candidates during the ongoing Nigerian Navy recruitment exercise at the Nigerian Navy Secondary School Ojo Lagos.
Upon apprehension, the Military Cornel admitted to perpetrating the crime. He said he had been in the act of siphoning monies from desperate applicants who wish to make a career in the Nigerian Navy.
“I am a thief, I extort monies from a candidate like you people. I charge as low as 20,000 and above…I started since batch A which commenced on the 29th of July. I have extorted hundreds of candidates so far,” he said.
While some operatives of the Nigerian Navy were carrying out their assignment of severely dealing with the Cornel, he was similarly paraded before candidates of the 2019 Nigerian Navy recruitment exercise on handcuffs where the military arm with the motto “Onwards Together” reemphasized it’s commitments to handing over to the Nigerian Police for possible prosecution, any suspect caught in any form of manipulation.
