The Director-General of NYSC while commiserating with the family of late Tunde, said in a statement presented by Bar. Ahmed Tijjani, that corps member Musa Momoh Tunde was a young patriotic Nigerian who died while in active service to the nation.
He advised the family to accept his death as an act of God noting that death is inevitable and can come when no one expects.
