The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brig Gen Shuaibu Ibrahim, has said the NYSC will not pay any ransom for the release of any kidnapped corps member.
He said this while advising corps members when he paid an unannounced visit to the NYSC orientation camp on Sunday in Katsina.
The DG advised the corp members to be security-conscious by being mindful of their movements and to also cultivate the habit of going to bed at 6pm.
The visit was the DG’s second visit to the camp following the death of three corps members serving in the state in a road crash.
“The NYSC will never pay a ransom if any corps member is kidnapped. Corps members are therefore advised to secure themselves as much as possible to avoid being kidnapped,” Ibrahim was quoted as saying in a statement by the spokesman for the NYSC in Katsina State.
He, however, reminded them to always obtain permission before traveling out of their areas of assignment.
