The Ghana Police Service is conducting an audit of recruits in Pwalugu in the Upper East Region after one of the recruits was arrested and convicted for presenting a fake certificate.

Sadam Sumaila was arrested and convicted for presenting a fake certificate from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

He was arrested when he went to demand a rightful placement after he was given a constable rank.

A circular by the police on Thursday (14 December) said, “We humbly recommend that, following the production of fake university certificate by G/R Sumaila Sadam and his conviction by a court, all the under cadets be given a pass to travel to their respective institutions for their transcripts and certified true of their certificates.”

In an earlier brief, the Ghana Police Service said Sadam, who had been under training since October 2023, presented a forged degree certificate claiming to have been issued by KNUST.

The brief said he had gone to the PPSTS’ administration to complain that he provided a degree certificate but was put in constable category and requested for same to be corrected.

The administration later detected the certificate was fake and arrested him.
