ICPC Arrest Job Seeker who submitted fake Documents to agency.

Almost 400,000 people applied for the 180 positions the ICPC is recruiting for.⁣

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) this week arrested some job applicants trying to fraudulently secure jobs with the agency.⁣

⁣The agency announced in a statement on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 that the applicants presented forged certificates and academic records during the on-going recruitment interview exercise.⁣

“Some of the false documents presented included Declarations of Age, School certificates, and other documentation that showed evidence of tampering,” the ICPC said.⁣

The anti-graft agency had last year commenced the process to recruit less than 200 new officers, but was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.⁣

Almost 400,000 people applied for the limited positions, and the ICPC conducted online tests which reduced the number of applicants to those invited for another round of evaluation this month.⁣

The follow-up evaluation is being conducted through one-on-one interviews, certificate verification, health certification, character profiling, and other assessments.⁣

ICPC said those that have been caught with false documents violated Section 25 (1) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act 2000.⁣

They have been detained and will face possible prosecution after the conclusion of investigations by the ICPC.⁣
