The Police Service Commission has disowned an online advertisement on the recruitment of general duty police officers.
This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Monday by Mr Ikechukwu Ani, the Head, Press and Public Relations of the commission.
“The attention of the Police Service Commission has been drawn to an online publication of an advertisement for the recruitment of cadet ASPs in the professional cadre purported to emanate from the commission.
“The commission wishes to state that the said publication did not originate from its office and it is not presently recruiting that category of police officers,” it said.
The statement advised the public to discountenance the publication.
It said the commission was currently investigating the source of the advertisement.
The statement appealed to the media to always crosscheck any information before publication.
It said the commission would continue to use its established channels of communication in dissemination of information.
The statement said masterminds of the advertisement would be dealt with.
