Another 2 abducted corps members regain freedom in Zamfara

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has again secured the release of two females among the abducted corps members who were kidnapped in Zamfara state on their way to the Orientation Camp in Sokoto.

It would be recalled that the Nigerian Army recently secured the release of a male and a female abductees, while efforts were “seriously on-going to ensure the safe release of the remaining four prospective corps members.

In a press released signed by the director, press and public relations in Abuja, the corps’ director-general, Brig.-Gen. YD Ahmed reassured members of the public, especially the parents of the remaining four abductees, that the Scheme “in conjunction with the security agencies would explore every available strategy that would ensure that they are released unhurt and reunite with their families.”

“Management also wishes to appreciate the overwhelming support being received from the Nigerian Army in its concerted efforts towards securing the release of the abducted prospective corps members. The Scheme will always remain resolute in its statutory responsibility of fostering national unity and integration,” the statement read in part.
