Police Recruitment: PSC debunks social media report inviting shortlisted candidates for training


The Police Service Commission on Tuesday, disowned multiple social media reports that it has set a date for the training of shortlisted candidates.

Saga Gist recalled a fake press statement signed by Ikechukwu Ani, which scheduled a date for the training of shortlisted candidates

But Ikechukwu Ani Head, Press and Public Relations in a statement debunked the report, just as it “condemned the use of the name of its Spokesman, Mr Ikechukwu Ani, on fictitious and phantom Press Statements calculated to deceive unsuspecting Nigerians on the status of the recruitment exercise.”

It said the commission had at no time issued any statement on the review of the list of successful candidates and invited successful candidates to check applications on the newly launched portal.

“The Commission has not at any time advised candidates to print any updated invitation slip and proceed to the Police Training Colleges. It has also not announced any date for the training programme and the Monday, July 22nd, 2024 date, bandied in the social media is just the imagination of the impostors,” the statement said.

It advised candidates to be patient and await its official statement on the just concluded recruitment exercise, even as it warned the unrelenting impostors to stay clear of its activities, especially the recruitment exercise.

It warned that anybody caught undermining the exercise would be dealt with in accordance with the law.
