The Delegate General for National Security, Martin Mbarga Nguélé has dismissed 8 new police recruits undergoing training at the Police Training Centre in Mutegene for falsifying documents. The decision was made public via a press release signed on Saturday 27th August 2016.
Two other students of the police academy were also sent parking from the training on the 3rd of August 2016 for unruly behaviour. A similar act was reported on 18th August 2016 when an Inspector of Police was fired from the school in relation to indiscipline.
According to the patron of the police force, the fake documents of these eight trainees were uncovered thanks to a commission put in place to review the status of each trainee and ensure order at the training centre. The elements excluded from the police force were admitted after a competitive entrance exam launched on 18th April 2015 to recruit 3000 police officers and reinforce peace in the country.
