The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has ordered arrest and prosecution of alleged fraudsters who are carrying out illegal recruitment exercises under the guise that they represent the Nigeria Police Force.

Police Force spokesman Frank Mba, in a statement on Friday, said the Force has not commenced the 2021 Police Constables Recruitment exercise; and urged persons who are desirous of joining the NPF; or who had earlier participated in some stages of the suspended 2020 Recruitment exercise, to exercise patience.

The IGP also implored members of the public to beware of unscrupulous persons currently promoting/advancing fraudulent recruitment schemes online with the intent of misleading and defrauding these (prospective) applicants.

“The general public is hereby advised that, as is customary with the Nigeria Police Force, every recruitment process of the Force commences with an official statement and advertisement in relevant mass media platforms, with detailed information on processes and procedures.

“This the Force will do as soon as it is set for the exercise,” the statement partly reads.

Mba, disclosed the commencement of an investigation which aimed at unravelling and prosecuting the orchestrators of these bogus and fraudulent recruitment schemes.
