The National Youth Service Corps says media reports alleging that corps members would be deployed by the federal government to fight a war for the restoration of democracy in Niger Republic is false.
Eddy Megwa, Director, Press and Public Relations, in a statement said there is no iota of truth in the story.
According to him, the story must have been fabricated by the purveyor, a skit and content creator, purposely to drive traffic to his platform.
He urged prospective corps members and their parents to disregard the story.
“The general public, especially corps members, prospective corps members and their parents, should disregard the story, which borders on criminality in its entirety,” he said.
