In a crackdown on fraudulent activities during the ongoing police recruitment process, the Adamawa State Police Command has apprehended six applicants for the position of police constables. This revelation was made public by the State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Suleiman Nguroje, on Tuesday, January 23.
According to Nguroje, the six applicants were caught during the screening exercise with suspected forged documents, prompting an immediate investigation into their actions. The screening process, aimed at ensuring the integrity of the recruitment, will persist until the 29th of this month. By that date, it is anticipated that a total of 29,848 applicants from Adamawa State will have undergone the screening process.
Notably, this development follows the Command’s announcement on January 19, 2024, of the arrest of four applicants who presented fake results. The recent arrests indicate an escalation in attempts to manipulate the recruitment process, underscoring the importance of thorough scrutiny in the selection of suitable candidates.
Adamawa State stands out as the second state with the highest number of initial applicants participating in the nationwide recruitment exercise for prospective police constables, highlighting the significance of maintaining the integrity of the recruitment process to ensure a qualified and trustworthy police force.Follow us on social media
