The Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, and the Police Service Commission (PSC) have fiercely disagreed over police recruitment.
The PSC had advertised recruitment process of constables for 2022 in its portal and placed an advert on the recruitment in a newspaper.
Responding to the development, the Nigeria Police Force urged Nigerians to discountenance the advertisement.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a statement on Monday, noted that the advert had no connection with the Nigeria Police Force and was in total disagreement with the police recruitment process.
“The Nigeria Police Force wishes to inform well-meaning members of the public that it has not commenced the 2022 police constables recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force contrary to a publication on Page 21 of Daily Sun Newspaper of Thursday August 11, 2022 by the Police Service Commission, the statement read in part.
It continued: “The police similarly stated unequivocally that the advert has no connection with the Nigeria Police Force nor is it in tandem with the police recruitment process, and should be disregarded in all its entirety. The website to which the publication refers intending candidates is not associated with the Nigeria Police Force.
“The Nigeria Police Force hereby call on all stakeholders and intending applicants to discountenance the information in both the newspaper and on the portal as the website is not the official portal for police constables recruitment.”
