Also, the Head of the Screening Team, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Mr Stanley Ude, commended members of the team for their efforts and commitment throughout the period of the exercise. He further warned the applicants to be wary of recruitment racketeers who will look for opportunities to defraud them.
“Accordingly, applicants have been enjoined to remain focused and have their fingers crossed, while they await official communication on the next stage of the recruitment.
“They have been cautioned to be wary of recruitment racketeers hell-bent on defrauding them under the guise of facilitating their enlistment into the Force, as the exercise remains absolutely free of charge and without any pecuniary obligation,’’ Ude said.
