Kano State Police Command has warned the public against the activities of some fraudsters extorting money from unsuspecting people on the pretext of getting them enlisted into the force.
This is contained in statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of the Command, ASP Magaji Majiya and issued to newsmen in Kano at the weekend.
The statement said reports had reached the command on the activities of the fraudsters.
According to the statement, the command has yet to receive any directive on recruitment in line with the Federal Government’s plan to employ additional 10,000 police officers across the country.
It urged the general public to report any person who approached them on the exercise to relevant security agencies, assuring that such fraudsters would be severely sanctioned.
Meanwhile, Senator representing Kano South Senatorial district, Senator Kabiru Ibrahim Gaya has appealed to the Inspector-General of Police, IGP and the Commandant of Nigeria Police Academy, Wudil Kano State to address the imbalance in admission into the academy.
The senator in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Prince Idris Afegbua and made available to newsmen, said that the recent admission list released by the academy was lopsided.
He explained that while some states have over one hundred candidates, Kano State which supposed to be a catchment area has only 56 candidates. He explained that the senator bought sixty forms of the academy for candidates from the area with other who bought by themselves but wondered why only 56 was being offered admission by the academy.
The senator called on the academy to consider adjusting the imbalance in the interest of justice and equity. He said that as components of the federal republic, all states should have equal share of candidates before advantage of catchment area is considered, he therefore urges the police authorities to urgently address the issue.
