The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim has said anyone caught in unlawful possession of NYSC uniform will serve 3 years in jail.
The NYSC boss said this after hoodlums attacked the NYSC orientation camp in Kubwa, Abuja.
Nyscinfo.com reported that hoodlums on Tuesday carted away mattresses, motorcycles, food items and other items belonging to NYSC.
“We don’t have palliatives in the camps, we are preparing for our orientation.
“Imagine, the youth went away with our uniforms.
“I want to appeal to Nigerian youth not to attack our camps, we don’t have palliatives there.
“It is illegal for you to use NYSC uniform and if you are caught, you will go to jail for three years,’’.
However, he advised the youth to return the uniforms, while urging them to key into government policies to improve their lives.
Shuaibu stated that NYSC scheme was created for the country’s development and the scheme had contributed a lot.
