Five members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) died in Jigawa in the last 12 months, the state Coordinator of the corps, Mr Ishaya Dede, said on Thursday.


Dede told the News Agency of Nigeria in Dutse that four of them died in separate auto accidents while one from illness.

He said that the service year of six, out of 1,232 members deployed to the state, had been extended by 12 months.

He said the corps members were penalised for allegedly absconding from their places of primary assignment.

Dede urged employers to furnish the corps authorities with vital information on corps members to enable them to monitor their movement.

The coordinator also appealed to the state government to provide additional hostels at the Yakubu Gowon NYSC Orientation camp.

Dede said the call was imperative to address the accommodation problem being experienced by members at the camp.

“Additional male hostels should be constructed at the camp to meet the growing number of members deployed to the state.

“There is also the need to complete the shopping mall at the camp to stimulate trade and improve the well being of the corps members,” he added.

NAN recalled that Jigawa Government constructed an ultra-modern orientation camp to enhance the scheme operations in the state.

The camp was inaugurated by President Goodluck Jonathan in November 2012.
