NYSC Debunks Reports To Send Corps Members To Niger Republic

Reports that Corps Members would be sent to the Niger Republic by the Federal Government of Nigeria to participate in a war for the restoration of democracy in the unstable nation have been refuted by the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Management.

Eddy Megwa, the Director of press and public relations for the NYSC, said this in a press release on Saturday and labeled the report as bogus.

He pleaded with members of the public, particularly Corps Members, prospective Corps Members, and their parents, to ignore the report that gave credit to skit makers and content creators.

He urged skit makers and content creators to stop spreading fake news and informations detrimental to the nation.

The statement reads; “The attention of NYSC Management has been drawn to a video circulating on the social media alleging that Corps Members would be deployed to Niger Republic by the Federal Government to fight a war for the restoration of democracy in the country.

“Management wishes to state that there is no iota of truth in the story fabricated by the purveyor, a skit and content creator, purposed to drive traffic to his platform.

“The general public, especially Corps Members, prospective Corps Members and their parents should disregard the story which borders on criminality in its entirety.

“Content and skit makers are strongly advised to desist from spreading false information capable of subverting the peace of the nation.

“Law Enforcement Agencies will stop at nothing to bring the purveyors of the story to justice,” it added.
