The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has announced that Grace Oghene Edegware, a youth corps member who was recently abducted, has been released.


Grace, who was deployed to Lagos state for national service, was reportedly abducted along with three other passengers in Kwali Area Council of the FCT while travelling on Wednesday.

Following her abduction, the NYSC said it was “liaising with the police, towards rescuing the corps member and reuniting her with her family, friends and colleagues”.

A statement released by the scheme acknowledged “the efforts of security agencies” in the rescue of the female corps member who hails from Delta state.


“We also thank all Nigerians that had shown concern about her plight even as we count on the continued support of all stakeholders for the safety of corps members wherever they are serving in the country,” the statement added.

No information was given regarding the circumstances that led to her release, the date she was set free, and the ransom paid, if any.
