“The church claimed that the corps member was abducted alongside his pastor.

“NYSC deploys corps members to only four of the 27 local government areas in the state.

“The councils are Jere, Bayo, Biu and Maiduguri Metropolitan Council (MMC).

“For any corps member to travel, he has to apply through proper channel and this involves a formal request from his employer, through the zonal inspector and channel to the state coordinator, where we look at it, endorse or approve the request.

“It was unfortunate that the said corps member travelled on his own; we have been having a sleepless night over the issue because he is under our custody.
