NYSC, security agencies secure release of 1 of 8 abducted Zamfara corps members

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) says it has secured the release of one of the eight Prospective Corps Members (PCMs) abducted in Zamfara State, through the help of security agencies.

The Director, Press and Public Relations, Mr Eddy Megwa, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.

Recall that eight corps members and their bus driver were abducted in August in Zamfara State by gunmen on their way from Uyo, Akwa Ibom to Sokoto.

They were going for the commencement of the one-year national service orientation course.

According to Megwa, the PCM, a female, regained freedom on Friday, at about 12.30pm.

“The scheme is confident that with the combined efforts of security agencies, the remaining will be released.

“As corps members and prospective ones alike are admonished by management to always prioritise their personal security.

“The scheme shall never shirk its responsibility of upholding the security and welfare of corps embers at all times,” he added.
