The Police Service Commission (PSC) Wednesday, said a total of 806, 646 applicants have since submitted their applications for recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force.
It will be recalled that the PSC had, on Tuesday, April 19, announced that it had received 705,352 applications from interested persons.
It means that within a space of eight days, the Commission received an addition of 100, 294 applications from Nigerian youths, notwithstanding the fact that only 10, 000 officers and men will be taken in the end.
The PSC, which made the disclosure in a statement by its Head, Press and Public Relations, Mr. Ikechukwu Ani, said “as at 9:35am today (Wednesday), a total of 806,646 applicants have submitted their applications.”
It said “A break down shows that 232,857 are seeking employment as ASPs, 190,415 as Inspectors and 383,374 as Constables. The submission of forms ends on the 13th of May, 2016, providing the applicants the required 6 weeks period.”
Meanwhile, the Commission has alerted the public of the activities of fraudsters, who it noted, were trying to take advantage of the recruitment exercise, to defraud unsuspecting applicants.
