The Nigeria Police had debunked a message being circulated on WhatsApp and other social media platforms inviting members of the public, particularly Muslim women, interested in joining the police, to forward their curriculum vitae to phone numbers 08036250317 or 08036014324 via WhatsApp.
According to a press release signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, mnipr, mipra, he stated unequivocally that the message did not emanate from the Nigeria Police Force nor is its content true.
“All communications regarding recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force are published publicly on national dailies and the police e-recruitment website at https://www.policerecruitment.gov.ng. The message which is in a mix of Hausa and English, as well as the phone numbers attached, has been forwarded to the relevant unit for prompt investigation and further necessary action.
The Force enjoins members of the public to discountenance the message as it is the handiwork of fraudsters intending to gain pecuniary advantages from prospective victims of the scam message, the statement concluded.
