Several Nigerians have called for the scrap of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) after it stated that Corpers in service would have to someone on hand to pay off ransom peradventure they get kidnapped.
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in a new handbook released to new corpers has warned that they will have to bail themselves from their own pocket should there be a situation of kidnapping.
A page in the handbook read;
“When travelling in high risk roads such as Abuja -Kaduna, Abuja – Lokoja – Okene or Aba – Port-Harcourt roads, then alert your family members, friends and colleagues in order to have someone on hand to pay off the ransom that could be demanded.”
Following the revelation, several Nigerians have poured their anger on social media and called for the scrap of the one year service scheme.
