(Premium Times)

The Nasarawa state police command has arrested four police applicants for forgery, and another for theft.

This was confirmed to newsmen by the officer in charge of recruitment in the state, Alhassan Mamoda.

Mamoda explained that one of the applicants stole a mobile phone during the screening exercise, adding that the other four forged certificates.

He said “Imagine someone who wants to join the police to protect lives and properties now stealing a handset at the venue of the screening exercise.

“He stole the handset and hid it in his pants and was discovered and apprehended in the cause of investigation.

“They were all handed over to the appropriate department of the force for further investigation.”

Nine police applicants were also detained by the Enugu state police command for allegedly falsifying their results.

The Police Service Commission (PSC) also warned that anybody caught giving or receiving money to facilitate the recruitment of applicants into the Nigeria Police Force would be investigated, arrested and prosecuted.
