3 Months To The Completion Of Course, Nigeria Police Expel 6 Asp Recruits From Training School (Find Out Why)
The Nigerian Police Staff College in Jos, the Plateau state capital, has expelled six new recruits from the training school.
While speaking exclusively to Premium Times, the school’s commandant, Dorothy Gimba, said the cadets were shown the way out after failing repeatedly to catch up with academics and physical training standards of the PSC.
Ms. Gimba, an Assistant Inspector-General of Police, said through telephone on Sunday; “The school has its standards, which they didn’t meet,”
“It was a very tough decision for us here. But we have to do what is necessary to enforce our standards,” Ms. Gimba said.
The six, four males and two females, were amongst the 500 cadet Assistant Superintendents of Police, ASPs, and cadet inspectors who were recruited in 2016.
They were sent to PSC, Jos, in January for their mandatory one-year pre-admission course, after which they would be posted across the country to begin their career proper in the force.
The six were dismissed from the camp in September, barely three months to the completion of the mandatory course.
The 2016 recruitment exercise also saw 7,500 new constables enlisted in the force, they’re also currently undergoing pre-admission training at various facilities across the country.
