An applicant for recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force, Christiana Danjuma, slumped and died while undergoing medical screening in Abuja, the Force Spokesman, ACP Jimoh Moshood, has said.

Moshood said in a statement in Abuja on Friday that Danjuma slumped and died while filling the medical test form.

Moshood said the deceased, with number PSCRKD094, was rushed to the National Hospital, Abuja, where she was confirmed dead.

He said that her corpse, earlier deposited at the National Hospital Mortuary, has been released to her family.

The spokesman said that the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, has directed a full investigation into the death.

Moshood said that Idris also commiserated with her family, and the government and people of her state, Kaduna, over the sudden death.

President Muhammadu Buhari recently gave approval for recruitment of 6,000 police constables to address manpower shortage in the force.

The Police Service Commission shortlisted applicants for the medical screening after a JAMB Computer-Based (CBT). (NAN)
