NYSC says no corps member raped in Akwa Ibom
The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has described as untrue reports that some 21 female corps members were raped during an attack carried out on Wednesday “by thieves”.
The Akwa Ibom State Coordinator of NYSC, Chinyere Ekwe, made the clarification this Thursday, in Abuja, saying she visited the Corps Members, in the company of the State Police Commissioner, Olatoye Durosinmi, for an on-the-spot assessment.
It was discovered that an attack on them was actually carried out by thieves at about 1 am this morning, but only their valuables including phones, laptops and some cash were taken but no bodily harm was meted on them, and no corps member was raped.
Also, the State Commissioner of Police assured the Corps Members and members of the public that an investigation on the matter has been launched and that the culprits will soon be apprehended.
