281 fake corps members were sent out of the Niger State orientation camp in Paiko after failing to provide authentic documents.
Disclosing this yesterday, August 26 at the close of the three weeks orientation exercise, at the camp, the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) Coordinator in the State, Mr. Steven Ehoda-adi, said the fake corps members who had nothing to show that they were qualified for admission into the camp, were immediately sent away.
Mr Steven said some of the corps members claimed to have been attacked by armed robbers on their way to Minna and their call up letters taken away from them while some said they misplaced their call up letter.
He added that some others presented only photocopies of the call up letter which according to him is not accepted by NYSC authority.
He explained that 230 corps members who were pregnant and nursing mothers were disallowed from taking part in routine orientation exercise in the state.
Leadership reports that the NYSC state coordinator disclosed that 3,259 of the Batch B corps members, 2014, successfully, completed the exercise for their primary assignment in the state.
