In Ogun, about 4,800 applied for the job with those from Abeokuta North and South local government areas applicants screened on Monday.

Gombe State Deputy Commissioner of Police Aliyu Adamu said the recruitment began smoothly but was interrupted when their internet gave way to heavy traffic.

“We had to slow down a bit because there was an interruption in the internet. Initially, we started with two computers but I have to request for one more so that we could hasten the work,” Adamu added.

Outside the venue of the screening centre, a large number of applicants who spoke with The Nation expressed their frustration with the slow pace of the process.

“We have been here since 7 am and this is 4 pm. Many of us are still outside waiting for our screening,” One of the applicants who gave his name simply as Umaru said.
