17 Fake NYSC Members Arrested: 9 Males, 8 Females

The Independent Corrupt
Practices and Other Related
Offences Commission
(ICPC) has arrested total of
Seventeen fake members of
the National Youth Service
Corps (NYSC).
They were rounded up and
arrested at the NYSC
Orientation Camp in Kubwa,
Abuja, on Thursday
evening while they were
posing and taking pictures
outside the camp during
the passing-out ceremony.
The ICPC, in a statement, said its operatives stormed the
camp based on intelligence
reports and arrested the suspects comprising eight females and nine males.
It said preliminary investigation revealed that 15 of the suspects claimed to have enrolled
in degree courses run by consultancy services in the University of Calabar (6), University
of Jos (6), Ebonyi State University (1), Federal University of Technology, Owerri (1) and
Crown Polytechnic, Ado-Ekiti (1).
Another suspect, a young man, impersonated his sister, a genuine corps member who
was receiving medical treatment abroad, in order to collect her discharge certificate.
One of the fake corps members, the commission noted, never attended any university,
but said she wanted to get an NYSC discharge certificate.
Employers, parents and guardians have thus been warned to confirm from the NYSC if
they were suspicious of any person submitting call-up letters, posting letters,
discharged and exemption certificates.
