The Director-General National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig-General Shauibu Ibrahim, has confirmed that a corps member was shot a few days ago for stealing handset.
The NYSC DG stated this during his visit to NYSC permanent orientation camp, Dankingeri, Kebbi State while advising corps members to steer clear of any act that could dent their image and the scheme.
He warned corps members against indulging in armed robbery and cybercrimes during their service year.
“A Corps member was shot last week for robbery. What did he steal? Handset. It is not pleasant news at all. You can imagine the embarrassment he has caused to himself, his parents and the scheme. Cybercrime – please don’t indulge in it. Once NYSC completed its investigation, NYSC will just hand over such Corps members to security agencies for their investigations, The Sun quoted him as saying.
Brig-Gen. Ibrahim who said he had literarily become a man of God through the way he preached told the corps members, “Shun social vices, cultism, cybercrimes, 419, robbery. Please, don’t indulge in it,” the DG said while addressing the Corps members.
“And we will call your parents that their sons or daughters were caught in robbery or cybercrimes. Let us not indulge in these,” Gen. Ibrahim advised.
Speaking on awards, Gen. Ibrahim explained that any Corp members who had sought relocation from his or her original state of deployment will not be considered for any award because they have violated the rules governing the projects and awards.
He also admonished corps members not to borrow money to execute any individual and group projects.
