The Police Command in Enugu State said persons with tattoo on their bodies would not be allowed into the ongoing nationwide recruitment into the force.
The Public Relations Officer of the command, Mr Ebere Amaraizu, said in Enugu on Monday that the measure was part of the rules for the recruitment.
“The present recruitment is for degree holders and will last for three weeks and after that, the selected ones will proceed for the written interview.
“Over aged people, tattooed persons, falsified results, statement of results over five years and people with some physical impediments will be disqualified from the exercise,” he said.
On the number of applicants shortlisted in Enugu, Amaraizu said it would be determined after the exercise.
“All I know is that 10,000 people will be recruited nationwide but I do not know the number of those that will be recruited in Enugu zone.
We have started and you can see that it is going on peacefully.
“The exercise is done in batches to avoid any form of rush or stampede.
“This command will screen the applicants thoroughly to ensure that the best get the Job,” he said.
