Lafia – Nasarawa State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) has arrested four suspected fake corps members at the ongoing Batch â€˜Bâ€™ NYSC orientation exercise in Keffi.
The four suspects, which included a female final year Sociology student of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, were yesterday detained at the state command headquarters of the NSCDC in Lafia.
The state Commandant of the NSCDC, Mr Emmanuel Nwize, said the suspects were arrested at the orientation camp while trying to take pictures with the NYSC uniforms.
According to the commandant, the suspects acknowledged that they could not graduate asa result of some problems ranging from carry-overs to lack of funds.
Nwize said the female suspect said she got the uniform from somebody in Keffi at a cost of N5,000, while the other suspects refused to disclose the amount they paid for their own.
He said he would hand over the suspects to the NYSC authorities in Keffi in Nasarawa State for further investigation and appropriate action.
