The Management of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has said that the NYSC uniform is not an immunity against any form of criminality because the laws of the Federation applies to all and sundry.
The NYSC Management gave the advise in reaction to information circulating on social media about a Corps Member sent to jail in Ibadan, Oyo State, for criminal offense.
According to the Management, the said Ukanwa Ikechuwuku is an ex-Corps Member who passed out of National Service in February 2023.
The NYSC however, admitted that when he was serving, he collected a sum of Two Hundred and Thirty Five Thousand naira to purchase a physiotherapy machine for a woman at the police clinic where he was serving but failed to get the machine.
“Every attempt made by the woman to get a refund of her money from this ex-Corps Member proved abortive, therefore she decided to charge him to court for criminal offence.
“All Corps Members are therefore by this statement admonished to always be of good behavior and adhere strictly to the core values of the NYSC Scheme in all their transactions.” NYSC Said in a statement.
