Abuja – The Chairman, Police Service Commission ( PSC), Mr Mike Okiro, has warned unsuspecting applicants to beware of activities of fraudsters.
This is contained in a statement issued by Mr Ikechukwu Ani, Head, Press and Public Relations of the commission on Tuesday in Abuja.
Okiro said that he had no face book account and had never operated any before.
He advised applicants to restrain themselves from being desperate for recruitment into the Force.
The chairman said that the fraudsters had started demanding money from applicants of the ongoing recruitment.
“The Commission recently concluded the State screening and would in no distant time begin the second phase of the process leading to the recruitment, “he said.
He reiterated his earlier statement that the recruitment would be transparent and based on merit.
Okiro said that the commission would resist any pressure to undermine or compromise the integrity of the process and the outcome of the exercise.
He said anybody paying for any assistance to be recruited into the force would be disappointed.
He stressed that security operatives were on the alert to arrest those giving and those that were receiving.
The chairman advised the public to report to the commission any underhand practices in respect of the recruitment.
“If they ask you to bring money, whether the fraudsters, our Staff or Policemen, report to us and we will arrest and prosecute the person or persons,”he said.
He said that successful applicants from the state screening would soon be invited for the next level of the process.
