The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has said that it will subject successful candidates in the ongoing recruitment exercise to compulsory Polygraph (Lie Detector) Test.

A statement on Tuesday by the Force’s Public Relations Officer, DCP Don Awunah said that the test will be in addition to the general background checks, biometrics, medical, physical examination, aptitude, oral and psychological tests. “The Police will also conduct a thorough verification of all documents submitted by prospective candidates,” he said.#

“The Inspector General of Police IGP Ibrahim K. Idris gave this directive while reviewing the recruitment exercise so far and expressed satisfaction with the progress made in recruiting Ten thousand personnel into the Nigeria Police Force. The IGP said that no candidate will be admitted for training at the Police academy and colleges without undergoing these prescribed tests.

The Polygraph test is aimed at ensuring that candidates are not of questionable character and their behaviours conform with standard rules of behaviour expected of an officer to be recruited into the Force.

The Police Academy and other training Colleges across the country will be equipped to carry out the necessary tests,” the statement added.

    So they have a polygraph/lie detector? I have not heard for once that they used it to resolve a crime. As much as I think that subjecting fresh recruits to a lie detector test is a good idea, may I suggest that you guys should put it to wider use. Do they even have the know-how to operate and maintain a lie detector? I heard it’s a very complex machine. Time will tell!

    What a joke. What a misplacement of priorities. Is it by this rubbish that the Nigerian Police Force will improve? How about first of all testing it on the miscreants who have stolen public money and used it to fatten up their wives and children while the common man loses weight by the second. Rubbish.

    No wahala but they should start from the top. The IG should go through the process again and they should check their mental status
