The Police Command in Jigawa says 1,728 of the 4,705 applicants who passed the medical and physical fitness screening for recruitment into the Force would sit for Computer-Based Test (CBT).
Spokesman of the command, SP Abdu Jinjiri, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Dutse on Saturday.
Jinjiri said the command had designated six centres for the CTB that would hold on May 25.
He said four of the centres were situated in Dutse, the state capital, while two others were in Kano State University of Science and Technology (KUST), Wudil, Kano State.
NAN reports that President Muhammadu Buhari had given approval for the recruitment of 6,000 additional policemen into the Force.
