• The management of the National Youth Service Corps on Tuesday said no corps member was killed on election duty in the recent attacks by insurgents in Gombe State.

    This is contained in a statement signed by NYSC’s Director of Press and Public Relations, Mrs Bose Aderibigbe, which stated that the media report in one of the nation’s leading electronic media was not only misleading but unfounded.

    “Management categorically wants to state that no corps member in Gombe died in the said attack by suspected insurgents.

    “The two names carried in the report as corps members who lost their lives were INEC’s ad-hoc staff and not corps members as reported,” the statement said.

    It said the management of the NYSC, however, commiserated with the families of those who lost their lives in the said attack.

    It restated the commitment of NYSC’s to the security and safety of all corps members nationwide including those on election duty.

    You will be recalled that it was reported that two INEC ad-hoc staff were allegedly killed in an attack by suspected insurgents in Gombe during last Saturday’s presidential election. (NAN)
