65 fake graduates handed over to the police by NYSC

65 fake graduates apprehended across 37 camps in Nigeria for allegedly presenting fake certificates during their National Youth Service Corps registration, have been handed over to the police for prosecution. 
The suspects busted during a verification of certificates presented at the different NYSC orientation camps include Nasiru Yau, Sheu Muktar,  Iliyasu Usman, Offor Blessing Chinelo, Mezenwa Ngozi Chidinma, Nwachukwu Chimaobi Curtis, Ononuju Amarachi Nwamaka, Francis Joseph Arinze and Chigozie Evidence Chijioke. It was learnt that some of the arrested suspects claimed to have graduated from Istop University, Cotonou in Benin Republic. 

“The total number of fake corps members nabbed during the 2019 Batch B Stream II orientation course was 65. All of them were handed over to the police for further investigation and prosecution.
“They were picked from different NYSC camps all over the federation” a paper which confirmed the fake graduates were handed over to the police read. 

This is coming after the NYSC Director of Press and Public Relations, Adenike Adeyemi said the Director-General of the NYSC, Brig Gen Shuaibu Ibrahim was stern in his warning that unqualified home-based and foreign-trained Nigerians would no longer pass through the scheme.

“The NYSC is committed to stemming the tide of fraudulent mobilisation of unqualified home-based and foreign-trained Nigerians, especially those purported to have graduated from unaccredited universities in the West African sub-region,” she noted.

Recall that in the last week of August 2019 when the orientation was in its second week, NYSC authorities announced that it apprehended over “50 unqualified graduates who came with fake certificates to the orientation camps” and attempted to get registered. The fake graduates were also decamped.
