The  Police Service Commission has  warned the commission's workers who would be involved in the screening of candidates to avoid any act that might compromise the integrity of the exercise as the recruitment of 10, 000 policemen begins nationwide today.

The PSC Chairman, Mike Okiro, said any worker involved in any misconduct during the exercise would be sanctioned in line with the Public Service Rules and might be prosecuted for sabotage.

The recruitment is in fulfillment of the promise made by  President Muhammadu Buhari  at the National Security Summit in Abuja last year that  10,000 personnel would be recruited to  boost  the manpower of the police.

Okiro told the workers that  “the Commission is ready to make a huge success of this presidential assignment in line with its resolution to discharge its duties within the ambit of the law, transparently, and according to laid down rules.”

Okiro also warned the candidates to desist from indulging or inducing the workers of the commission, stressing that anyone caught would be arrested and prosecuted.

He explained that the Nigeria Police Force deserved the best brains in the Nigerian society, stressing that the PSC would ensure that only the best would be engaged as policemen.
