Warning issued of 'police fraudsters'

13 September 2013, 09:37Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Police warned members of the public against some fraudsters pretending to recruit youth into the force.

“It has come to the knowledge of the Nigeria Police Authorities that many young and able-bodied Nigerian Youths desirous of enlisting into the Nigeria Police Force are being hoodwinked by fraudsters into believing that the Force is currently engaged in recruitment/enlistment exercise,” Frank Mba, the Force Public Relations Officer, said at the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

“It has therefore become necessary to inform members of the public that no recruitment/enlistment exercise is taking place now at the Force Headquarters or at any of our institutions, Commands and Formations.”

He said the police force would inform the general public whenever it intended to recruit or enlist personnel through appropriate channels, including public advertisements in the media.

Mba further advised Nigerians not to fall victim to the fraudsters.

“The Public is therefore advised not to fall victim, by making monetary payments or any other consideration to fraudsters masquerading as agents of the Police. The public is further advised to feel free to contact the Police Public Relations Officer in their State of residence or the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) nearest to them whenever in doubt on all issues relating to recruitment and other policing matters,” Mba said.
