The Nasarawa state police command has arrested a lady allegedly posing as a member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC)


In a statement on Thursday, Ramhan Nansel, the police PRO, said the suspect was arrested following a complaint lodged at Keffi divisional headquarters by a staff of NYSC last Sunday.

He said the staff reported that the 23-year-old lady had gained unlawful entrance into the Magaji Dan Yamusa orientation camp in Keffi.

“The suspect was discovered at the camp during headcount by the NYSC officials, “the statement reads in part.


“Investigation revealed that the suspect was a student of Ebonyi State University, Faculty of Management Science, Department of Public Administration.”

The police spokesperson said the suspect had confessed that she was supposed to have graduated in 2022 but had a lot of spillover courses.

He said, “in a bid to cover up the lies, the suspect bought NYSC uniforms and other items from the market, sneaked into the camp in order to take photographs, and send them to her parents, before nemesis caught up with her”.


Nansel said Umar Nadada, the state commissioner of police, has advised other people with the same mindset of posing as NYSC members to rethink, adding that the long arm of the law would catch up with them.
