The Kano State Police Command has warned members of the public to be wary of the activities of fraudsters extorting money from unsuspecting people on the pretext of getting them enlisted into the police.




    The warning was contained in statement issued by the Public Relations Officer of the command, Magaji Majiya, an Assistant Superintendent in Kano on Saturday.

    The statement said many reports about the antics of the fraudsters have been reported to the command.

    According to the statement, the command has yet to receive any directive on recruitment regarding 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.
