In what will come across as a really heartbreaking development, two National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members have died.
They lost their lives in a ghastly motor accident on their way back home to Kaduna State after the 2022 Batch "B" Stream One Orientation Course in Adamawa State.
This was confirmed in a statement released by the NYSC Director of Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa, stating that deceased were on relocation from Adamawa to Kano State before the unfortunate accident occurred along Zaria/Kano highway after their registration in Kano.
The statement reads in part: "The Director General of National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier General Muhammad Kaku Fadah on behalf of the NYSC Management has condoled with the families of two Corps Members that lost their lives in a ghastly motor accident on their way back home to Kaduna State after the 2022 Batch "B" Stream One Orientation Course in Adamawa State.
"The deceased were on relocation from Adamawa to Kano State before the unfortunate accident occured along Zaria/Kano highway after their registration in Kano.
"Speaking during his condolence visits to the bereaved families today in Kaduna, General Fadah commended the patriotic spirit of the deceased Corps Members who paid the supreme sacrifice while serving their fatherland.
"He thereafter prayed for the repose of their souls."
The statement also stated that "The Director-General had visited the other two Corps Members that survived the accident but were receiving treatment at the 44 Military Hospital in Kaduna."
The General, therefore, pray for their quick recovery.
He added that the Scheme would do everything possible to put a smile on their faces.
