No palliatives stored in any NYSC camp – DG


DIRECTOR General, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC),  General Shuaibu Ibrahim, has denounced the rumour that palliatives are stored in camps across the country.

  He said this when the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Mohammed Adamu, visited the NYSC camp in Kubwa, Abuja, on Friday, to assess the extent of damage after it was looted by hoodlums.

Ibrahim, who said they were preparing for the camp to be reopened on November 10, 2020, begged Nigerians not to attack their facilities.

He said the attack on the camp by looters was unfortunate as their duty was to train young Nigerians to better serve their communities.

Brigadier Adamu, who described the camp as heavily looted, said they were working hard to round up the perpetrators.

He said  53 people had been arrested so far for looting the camp and some of the items recovered.

Adamu called on members of the public to provide information about people they know looted any property in any part of the city.
