The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brig Gen Shuaibu Ibrahim, has warned corps members to secure themselves as much as possible to avoid being kidnapped.
The NYSC DG gave the charge on Sunday, during an unscheduled visit to the NYSC orientation camp in Katsina, following the death of three corps members serving in the state, who lost their lives in an auto-crash.
Brig Gen Ibrahim urged the corps members to be security conscious as the NYSC will not pay ransom to secure the release of any kidnapped corps member.
“The NYSC will never pay ransom if any corps member is kidnapped. Corps members are therefore advised to secure themselves as much as possible to avoid being kidnapped,” he said.
