An Inspector of the Nigeria Police Force, serving at the Force Headquarters in Abuja, collected N200,000 from Mr. Sunday Maliki and offered him a fake appointment letter and a police identity card as a Spy Police Officer. The issue was reported at the Complaint Response Unit of the Nigeria Police Force in Abuja.

Another officer, known as “Shehu” was assigned to investigate the issue and to ensure the refund of the money collected from the victim. But Shehu brought in another person to pay N200,000 for the same slot, knowing well that the job in question was fake. Thereafter, Shehu handed over the sum of N150,000 to the victim and asked him to let go of the remaining N50,000 balance. The investigation revealed that Shehu’s told the victim: “Some of the officers who benefited from the money cannot be approached now to refund it”.

I have been following this issue with keen interest and I have more than enough evidence to prove that the inspector, Shehu, and other police officers are collecting money from the unemployed youth to offer them fake jobs.

I am calling on the relevant authorities to act now to prevent other youths from being victims.
