Mrs. Queen Uba Eziuche, a Batch B member with a call-up number: NYSC/ISU/2020/0562, reportedly went to sleep after the regular morning exercise and she didn’t wake up.
The state NYSC coordinator, Mr Julius Amusan, who confirmed her death on Wednesday, said she died from an ailment suspected to be a terminal disease.
