Officials at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Headquarters in Abuja are anxious over the fate of about 100 corps members participating in Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia.

The scheme had granted about 100 corps members permission to embark on pilgrimage, reports Vanguard.

A source told the newspaper that the management was worried about the welfare of its corps members, adding that they had been taking necessary steps to reach them but the efforts have proven abortive.

“About 100 corps members are participating in this year’s hajj. They were given permission but the management is concerned about their wellbeing. The management started contacting their relatives to get first hand information about their well-being,” the source told Vanguard.

Nigeria is one of the countries with the highest number of casualties in the Hajj stampede which led to more than 700 deaths. The Nigerian victims already identified are over 50.
