Following attack on NYSC formation by Covid19 palliative seekers, the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) has directed its State Coordinators nationwide to liaise with security agencies in their respective states to beef up security presence to prevent potential attacks on its camps by hoodlums searching for hidden COVID-19 palliatives.

“Yes it’s a directive from our headquarters, asking state coordinators to liaise with security agencies in the state in order to beef up security in their orientation camps.
“As you can see we have already deployed the Police, Army, and other security agencies to our orientation camps in case of any eventuality or attack on us.
