The Director-General, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig.- Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, on Tuesday warned politicians to stop harming corps members during elections.
Ibrahim said a continued harming of corps members would mean that they would not be taking to work at polling units again.
The D-G gave the warning during an on-the-spot inspection of a corps member, Saidu Mohammed, who sustained gun shot injuries at Omuo Ekiti during last Saturday’s bye-election held in part of Ekiti.
The NYSC boss who spoke with journalists at the Federal Teaching Hospital, Ido-Ekiti, (FETHI) where the corps member was receiving treatment, described the situation as worrisome.
He said that Gov. Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti had assured him that the law enforcement agency had arrested some suspects.But government must ensure that the perpetrators are dealt with in consonance with the laws to serve as deterrents to other like minds,
