NYSC warns corps members on criminal activities
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has warned corps members against indulging in criminal activities.
The NYSC Director for Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa, made the call in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.
The NYSC was reacting to the conviction of a corps member, Christopher Adetuberu, for cybercrime.
The statement read: “While the scheme unreservedly upholds the judgment of the court which doubtlessly will serve as a deterrent to other Nigerians of like minds, it however restates that the action of the convict is not a paradigm for other corps members; therefore does not represent the behavioral disposition of an average corps member.

“Accordingly, management enjoins all corps members to exhibit, at all times, the ideals of patriotism, humility, selfless service, discipline, among others which the Scheme stands for.
“Let it be known that the scheme shall never shield any member of the service corps that falls short of the law.”
