The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Kayode Egbetokun, has warned against the activities of fraudsters and individuals who may attempt to exploit the recruitment process of police constables in the general duty and specialist Cadres of the Nigeria Police Force for personal gain.
The commencement of the physical/credentials screening for applicants into the rank of Police Constables in the General Duty and Specialist Cadres of the Nigeria Police Force will hold nationwide from 8th to 29th January 2024.
The IGP emphasised that the application and selection process is free, and will be carried out through official channels and while unscrupulous activities should be promptly reported.
The Chairman, Police Service Commission, Mr Solomon Arase, has also warned the commission’s officials, deployed for the recruitment of new Constables, against the collection of money from applicants and families.
According to Arase, it is not just a recruitment exercise, but a defence of the sanctity of the commission’s mandate and demonstration of its competence.
