Police in Adamawa on Tuesday warned the public against the antics of online fraudster, ahead of the preparation for the recruitment of 10,000 policemen, as directed by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Command’s Police Public Relations officer, DSP Usman Abubakar, gave the warning in a statement issued in Yola.

He warned prospective applicants to be careful of those who might want to use the opportunity to defraud them.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the President gave the warning recently at a meeting with officials of the Ministry of Police Affairs and the Police Service Commission (PSC), at the Presidential Villa, in Abuja.

Buhari warned that he will not tolerate any irregularities or extortion from the unemployed as the Federal Government plans to beef police workforce with 10,000 new recruits.

“The public is hereby warned to be aware of online fraudsters.

“Who, according to the Information before us are trying to take advantage of the recruitment information to defraud people of their hard earned money,” Abubakar was quoted in the statement.

He also threatened that the command is ready to deal with any commercial cyber cafe or computer centres found selling the unauthorised police recruitment forms.

The police spokesman explained that when the sale of the forms would begin, the public would be informed through appropriate media channels.

NAN gathered that some commercial cyber cafe and computer centres in Yola and its environs, were already making profits from down loading the alleged police recruitment forms on the internet.
