The Ebonyi state NYSC camp has expelled two corps members from the three weeks orientation camp for the 2019 Batch C Stream for refusing to wear trousers.

Ngozi Ukwuoma, the NYSC spokesman in the state, who made the disclosure with newsmen said the duo were spotted by the camp director, Mrs. Isu Josephine.

Also, she gave the names of the duo as Okafor Love Obianuju with registration number EB/19C/0523 and Odji Oritsetsolaye (EB/19C/0530) adding that they refused to wear trousers because it is against their faith and would rather wear skirts.

“When they were accosted and interrogated, they disclosed that they could not wear white shorts and the trousers given to them by the NYSC since it was against their faith.

Efforts were however made by the office of the Camp Director to make them see the reason why they must obey the rules and regulations guiding the orientation and NYSC, but all efforts to do that proved futile.

The corps members were queried and subsequently made to face the camp court, where they were found guilty, having made it categorically clear that they were ready to bear the consequences of their actions,” she said.


  1. God bless this two for their courage to declare their faith may d good lord strengthen and uphold you to the end.shame to our very Big Christian leaders who have failed and can’t speak the truth anymore.this two will suffer but if it were to be other religion their leaders will take it up shame on christians.pls how can I get in touch any no?

  2. Is there not freedom of choice anymore in the said country Nigeria? since it’s against their faith, then you let them alone because it was from the beginning :the women should not wear that which pertaineth to men.

  3. l supposed the camp director and her panel of Jorges are all so call Christians. this is how we Southerners have always Bewitched our selves in this country. l must also let you know that if this same people hard served in the north they would have been allowed and their faith respected. that woman that engineered and pioneered this should be ready to answer for this wicked act on the last day.
