NIGERIA Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Nasarawa State command, on Monday, arrested 62 fake corps members at another fake National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation camp at Tammah village, in Nasarawa Local Government Area of the state.
It was gathered that the fake orientation camp was to operate for just one day, in which all the fake corps members would take their photographs with both the NYSC vested crest and other kits and were likely to be issued fake certificates forthwith for future references.
44 females and 18 males fake members were arrested. Four drivers, who conveyed them to the village and one of the photographers assigned for the illicit job, were also arrested.
Suspected fake corps members were arrested at the outskirt of Nasarawa town near the Government Secondary School and investigations are still on, as they will be charged to court immediately after investigations.
investigations thus far revealed that one Mr Chinedu, was the coordinator and director of the fake camp. suspected fake corps members paid money ranging from N120,000 to N200,000 before they were admitted to the camp.
In an interview with newsmen, some of the suspects, who were alleged to be running evening classes at the University of Jos, Jos, Plateau State capital, lamented that they were lured into it, saying, “we were not aware it is fake due to our desperation to get job after the education, because without the NYSC certificate, we may not get a job in the future.”
