The Police Service Commission (PSC) has revealed how 925 names were smuggled into the list of new personnel recruited into the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

In a statement released by the PSC’s spokesman, Ikechukwu Ani, on Tuesday, December 1, the PSC claimed that these persons did not go through the necessary recruitment test and stages.

Ani disclosed that the commission made this discovery in the cause of screening the list of 10,000 successful applicants who made it into the force.

He said: “It is also necessary to clarify that in the cause of screening of the list of the 10,000 successful candidates, the commission discovered that 925 persons never applied for recruitment and did not go through the stages and processes of recruitment. These included screening, aptitude test, and medical examinations.”

Ani also debunked claims that the commission is delaying the recruitment of some constables into the NPF. Refuting the allegation, he noted that the said constables have been screened, given appointment letters on the platform of the Integrated Pay-Roll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) for the payment of their salaries.

His words: “The commission wishes to clarify that it had to bend backward to accommodate the list of these candidates even after the Court of Appeal gave judgment in favour of the commission nullifying the hijack of the recruitment exercise by the Nigeria Police Force.

“The appeal court judgment which is still subsisting had declared the exercise null and void and returned the constitutional powers of the commission to recruit all persons into the Nigeria Police Force.”
