The High Command of the Nigeria Police on Friday said that there was no recruitment exercise currently going on in the Force as being made to believe in some quarters.
This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja by the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), Frank Mba, a Commissioner of Police (CP).
The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba wishes to notify the general public that the Nigeria Police is currently not recruiting.
According to him, “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.
The Force spokesperson advised the members of the public who were desirous of joining the Nigeria Police Force or who had earlier participated in some stages of the suspended 2020 Recruitment exercise to exercise patience and beware of unscrupulous persons currently promoting/advancing fraudulent recruitment schemes online with the intent to mislead and defraud these (prospective) applicants.
According to him, “the general public is hereby advised that, as it 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.”
CP Mba further added that the Nigeria Police Force had commenced investigation aimed “at unravelling and prosecuting the orchestrators of these bogus and fraudulent recruitment schemes.” (Nigerian Tribune)
