The Police administration is on a hunt for a recruitment camp housing fake recruits being the machinations of some scrupulous persons who are using it to exploit monies from unsuspecting citizens.
The camp located in the Afram Plains in the Eastern Region produced two fake recruits arrested by police on Tuesday in Kwabenya.
Twenty-Four (24) year-old Ernest Sarfo was arrested after persistent complaints from residents about unauthorized operations within the area.
He is reported to have mounted a road check but spotted improperly dressed which resulted in his arrest.
Upon his arrest however, he claimed he was among 80 recruits passed out by one Francis after undergoing intensive training in the Afram Plains.
Ernest claimed he was posted to Walewale in the West Mamprusi District of the Northern Region after graduation but the station rejected him insisting they did not receive any notice from the headquarters to that effect.
He produced a recruitment form and an appointment letter, which were all found to be fake.
Efforts to reach Ernest’s agent, whom he had paid GH¢2,500 for the 30-day training proved futile.
The second fake policeman, Enock Bah, who was arrested on July 1, at Obom Junction by okada operators, told the police he stole the police accoutrements from a police relative who was once stationed at Kwabenya.
However, records at the police station showed that none of the names he mentioned ever worked there.
