A female Police candidate, Christiana Danjuma, slumped and died in Abuja on Friday during medical screening in the ongoing Police recruitment exercise.

Danjuma, from Kaduna State, was said to have slumped while filling the medical test form and was rushed to the National Hospital, Abuja, where she was confirmed dead around 11 a.m.

The Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Jimoh Moshood, said in a statement that the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has ordered an investigation into the incident.

He explained that her body, which was earlier deposited at the National Hospital mortuary, had been released to her family.

The statement read, “The Nigeria Police Force regrets to announce the sudden death of Danjuma Christiana, a female PC recruit candidate with number PSCRKD094 from Kaduna State undergoing medical screening for the 2018 Police recruitment.

“The said late Danjuma slumped while filling the medical test form; she was resuscitated and rushed to National Hospital, Abuja, where she was confirmed dead at about 11:00hrs.

“Her corpse earlier deposited at the National Hospital Mortuary, Abuja, has been released to her family.”
