The Nigeria Police Force has denied reports credited to one Ace of Spades (AOS) Consult Nigeria Limited, stating that individuals and legal entity (both foreign and domestic) will from 1st July, 2019 have the opportunity to sign up and acquire a Police Background Check Number (PBCN), through a dedicated website which will be unveiled soon.
The Force in a statement by its spokesperson Frank Mba on Sunday described the claim by AOS as “pack of lies”
The statement read in part, “the Nigeria Police Force has no plans whatsoever to unveil any such dedicated website for purposes of carrying out background checks in the manner stated in the publication.
“By this disclaimer, therefore, members of the public, including corporate entities, are advised not to allow themselves to be wheedled into parting with their hard-earned resources under the pretext of acquiring a Police Background Check Number (PBCN) through Ace of Spades Consult. Any individual or organization that does so, does it at their own expense and risk.
“Meanwhile, the Force has commenced investigations into circumstances surrounding the purported claims and publication.”
