The Jigawa State Police Command on Wednesday said it has begun the screening of 4,705 applicants for recruitment into the force.
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Command, Abdu Jinjiri, in a chat with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Dutse, the state capital said the applicants were drawn from all Local Government Areas of the state.
Jinjiri stated that during the period of the exercise, the command will check applicants’ health statuses, sights, physical finesses, as well as their credentials.
“Their bow-legs or K-legs will all also be checked. Their credentials will thoroughly be screened to detect forgery,” he said.
He noted that only, “three females out of the 4,705 applicants had turned up for the exercise.”
