The Delegate General for National Security in Cameroon, Martin Mbarga Nguélé has dismissed 8 new police trainees undergoing training at the Police Training Centre in Mutegene for falsifying documents.

The decision disclosed in a communique signed this Saturday 27th August 2016 excluded these trainees from the final list, a few days to the end of the training.

It is worth noting that, two other police students were laid off from the training on 3rd August 2016 for unruly behaviours that are considered unhealthy to the National security corps.

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.
