NYSC reportedly decamps

The leadership of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) have reportedly decamped a corp member serving in Oyo State for condemning the hostel at Iseyin orientation camp.

The corp member, who is only known by his Twitter handle @anthonystilldey, had taken to the microblogging platform to express his displeasure with the state of the hostel.

He likened it to Kirikiri maximum prison, stating that the prison facility is better than Oyo state orientation camp.

He also decried having to spend three weeks in camp, and called for the compulsory one-year national service to be scrapped.

Sharing a video of the hostel, the tweep wrote,

“Kirikiri >>> Ajimobi hostel.

So I’ll be here for three weeks.

Scrap NYSC now!”

The tweet quickly went viral on social media and apparently captured the attention of the camp coordinators who tracked him down.

According to online sources, the young man was decamped on Monday morning, August 21, and his service year has been extended without payment.

In other news, the Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare in Anambra State, Hon. Ify Obinabo, has taken decisive action by sealing off the Arrow of God Community Children’s Home in Onitsha due to allegations of engaging in illegal adoption and child sales.

The closure occurred on August 16, 2023, following the circulation of an investigative report by journalist Fisayo Soyombo on social media and local television outlets. This report implicated the state’s Ministry of Women and Social Welfare in an illegal adoption case, involving a baby girl from one of the registered homes in the state.
