The management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has announced the release of one out of the eight prospective Corps Members abducted in Zamfara state.
It was reported that on August 17, 2023 eight Corps members were kidnapped in Zamfara on their way from Uyo to Sokoto.
However, in a press statement by the NYSC Director, Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa on Saturday, the Scheme said on Friday, 20th October, 2023, at about 12.30pm, it secured the release of one out of the seven in captivity and the bus driver.
The statement read, “The Scheme is confident that with the combined efforts of security agencies, the remaining will be released.
“As corps members and prospective ones alike are admonished by management to always prioritise their personal security; the scheme shall never shirk its responsibility of upholding the security and welfare of Corps members at all times.”
