Two More Abducted Corpers Regain Freedom – NYSC

Two additional prospective National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members from Akwa Ibom State, who were abducted in Zamfara State while en route to the orientation camp in Sokoto State, have been successfully freed, as confirmed by Eddy Megwa, the Director of Press and Public Relations, in a statement on Thursday.

In a previous report on December 4, it was highlighted that eight graduates had been kidnapped on their way to the NYSC orientation camp in Sokoto State, and by that date, they had yet to be released, marking a span of four months.

The fresh graduates, taken by gunmen on August 17 along a highway in Zamfara State, were traveling in an AKTC bus to Sokoto State for the mandatory youth service program.

In the recent statement issued on Thursday, the NYSC management announced the successful release of two more abducted prospective corps members, indicating progress as four out of the eight PCMs and the kidnapped driver have now regained freedom.

The statement partly read, “The Nigerian Army recently secured the release of a male and female abductees, while efforts are seriously ongoing to ensure the safe release of the remaining four Prospective Corps Members.”

It added that the NYSC Director-General, Brig.-Gen. Yush’au Ahmed, “hereby reassures the public, especially the parents of the remaining four abductees that the scheme, in conjunction with security agencies, will explore every available strategy to ensure their release unhurt and reunite them with their families.

“NYSC management also wishes to appreciate the overwhelming support received from the Nigerian Army in its concerted efforts towards securing the release of the abducted prospective corps members,” Megwa added.

He reiterated the scheme’s dedication to fulfilling its mandate under the law to advance national unity and integration.
