NYSC Speaks On Kidnap Of Corp Members



Breaking: NYSC Members To Receive N30,000 Minimum Wage - Minister Of Youths

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Ondo State has denied the news making rounds that ten of its corps members were kidnapped.

Naija News reports that the Corps’ Public Relations Officer in the state, Bankole Simeone made this known in a statement in Akure, the state capital.

He noted that the management of the Corp in the state had already put all machinery and effective measures in place in a deliberate attempt to safeguard the lives of corps members in the state.

“The attention of the NYSC, Ondo State Management has been drawn to news making the rounds and trending on some social media that some corps members have been kidnapped.

“The news is not only false but baseless and unfounded.

“The management through the established procedure can authoritatively tell the general public, especially the parents and guardians not to panic as all corps members serving in all the local governments in the state or those who are currently in camp at Ikare-Akoko are safe, sound and healthy.

“We wish to advise the members of the press and other related agencies to avail themselves the friendly disposition of the State Coordinator, Mrs. Grace Akpabio to verify the authenticity of any report before putting such in public domain.

“So as not to mislead the general public and other stakeholders of the noble Scheme,” the statement said.
