Army dispels rumours of secret recruitment

By Lamin Cham

The Army spokesman has dismissed rumours doing the rounds that the army is engaged in a secret recruiting of personnel.

Over the last few days, social media was rife with rumours of a secret recruitment of people into the army.
‘This is not true at all. Recruitment into the army is always widely publicised. What is happening is that currently, GAF is vetting and screening the people who volunteered to be security for the Coalition team before and during the impasse for possible integration into the army and other security units,” Lt Col Omar Bojang told The Standard yesterday.
He said that there was no time that the army conducted a secret recruitment and certainly not now.
