Cybercafe Cafe Owner Caught Selling Fake Police & Army Recruitment Form In Ilorin Arrested
Sept 23, 2015 – Cybercafe Cafe Owner Creates, Sells Fake Police & Army Recruitment Form After 10,000 Military Job Creation Order From Buhari
A middle-aged man, Isah Samuel, has been arrested by the police in Ilorin, Kwara State for allegedly selling fake recruitment forms into the police. Samuel said he downloaded the form from a police website which he claimed had been shut down.
The suspect runs a cybercafé on the popular Murtala Mohammed Road, Ilorin, and was arrested on September 18. He had displayed a signpost in front of his business centre advertising the sale of the fake forms. Samuel also advertised sales of recruitment forms into the Nigerian Army.
But the Commissioner of Police, Mr Esosa Amadesun, who paraded the suspect along others arrested for various criminal offences, said investigators did not find any printed form for recruitment into the Army with him when he was searched. He said: “We have warned the public several times about this.”
Amadesun said although President Muhammad Buhari had approved the recruitment of 10,000 men into the police, there was no directive yet on when the exercise would start.
The commissioner said the suspect created a letterhead from his computer to make the forms real. He said: “Police recruitment form is not yet out; when the time comes we will not hide it at all.”
