There has being a circulation on social media that About two hundred thousand (200,000) NYSC members across the North-East region of the country were killed this year being 2021, because of the high rate of kidnapping which is the result from the insecurity experienced in the country.
This very update wasn’t seen as a genuine report by the management of the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC), who has come out to debunk the claim. The fake report gave the analysis that within the year, three hundred and seventy-six (376) Corps members were kidnapped across the North East States, while in Kaduna State and Zamfara State one hundred and eighty-nine (189) Corps members were killed.
The management disclosed to the general public that there is no record of Corps member kidnapped in the said geopolitical zone, neither was any killed by a bandit in the mentioned States this year.
It is therefore important for reporters to consult the scheme who is always open to respond to anyone’s enquiries regarding the scheme, before making their publications. Instead of passing false report to the public, thereby miss informing Nigerians.
Making a good and confirmed report is the only way to acknowledge standard journalism in the country, instead of broadcasting unconfirmed news.
Conclusively, the NYSC Management gave Nigerians the assurance that they will always work with the respective security agencies, to increase the safety of Corps members all over the country.
