…Orders the arrest and prosecution of individuals behind recruitment scam
The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba has refuted claims that the Nigeria Police is currently recruiting Constables.
This clarification is coming on the heels of the proliferation of fake recruitment portals and schemes on the internet falsely claiming that the Nigeria Police Force has commenced the 2021 Police Constables Recruitment exercise.
In a statement signed by the Force’s PRO, Frank Mba, members of the public who are desirous of joining the Nigeria Police Force were advised to beware of unscrupulous persons promoting fraudulent recruitment schemes on line.
The statement further warned Nigerians who had earlier participated in some stages of the suspended 2020 Recruitment exercise to exercise patience.
“The general public is hereby advised that, as is customary with the Nigeria Police Force, every recruitment process of the Force commences with an official statement and advertisement in relevant mass media platforms, with detailed information on processes and procedures. This the Force will do as soon as it is set for the exercise”, it said further.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Police Force affirmed that it has commenced investigation aimed at unravelling and prosecuting the orchestrators of the fraudulent recruitment schemes.
