The Director-General, The National Youths Service Corps (NYSC), Brig.-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, says its camp in Kubwa, Abuja, was attacked by those who thought items there were palliatives.
He stated this on Friday, after the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu inspected the extent of looting and damage done to the facility.
He noted that the scheme was preparing for the forthcoming orientation scheduled to begin on November 10.
Ibrahim said, “People think that NYSC camps have palliatives, but I want to tell Nigerians that we don’t have palliatives in our camps.”
The DG appealed to citizens across the country to stop attacking NYSC camps.
He said most of the items were labelled and only meant for corps members.
‘Hoodlums’ carted away food items and other materials during the attack last Tuesday.
IGP Adamu said some have been recovered and a number of the burglars arrested, with the police searching for more suspects.
