Senior Police officers are being warned to shun corrupt acts during the recruitment of 6,000 persons into the force. The officers so addressed were those nominated into the screening exercise for recruits from across the 37 police commands nationwide.
Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris, who handed down the warning, said Idris he expects an exercise that is “smooth, hitch free and devoid of any form of corrupt practice.”
Idris spoke through Deputy Inspector-General Emmanuel Iyang, (who is charge of police training and development), at the Sunday opening of the screening exercise holding across the 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
More so, the Nigeria Police said applicants for the recruitment would sit for the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB. Jimoh Moshood, as Assistant Commissioner of Police and spokesman for the force, said in a statement. “For the first time, successful candidates, after the physical screening, will undergo a written aptitude test to be conducted by Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to ensure transparency and get the best out of the candidates,” he said.
