Management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has denied reports that some of its members have been abducted by kidnappers in Ondo State.

Reports had emerged Tuesday night in some quarters that 10 serving Corps members kidnapped by unknown gunmen, in Ondo.

NYSC reacted to the report via a statement sent to Newsflash247 on Wednesday by Bankole Simeone, Ondo NYSC Public Relations Officer (PRO).

Full Statement,

“The attention of the NYSC, Ondo State Management has been drawn to news making the rounds and trending on some social media that some corps members have been kidnapped.

“The news is not only false but baseless and unfounded.

“The management through the established procedure can authoritatively tell the general public, especially the parents and guardians not to panic as all corps members serving in all the local governments in the state or those who are currently in camp at Ikare-Akoko are safe, sound and healthy.

“We wish to advise the members of the press and other related agencies to avail themselves the friendly disposition of the State Coordinator, Mrs Grace Akpabio to verify the authenticity of any report before putting such in public domain.

“So as not to mislead the general public and other stakeholders of the noble Scheme.”
