200-Level Student Goes For NYSC, Arrested With Fake Certificate In Zamfara
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) authorities have arrested a
200-level journalism student of a university in Benin Republic and handed
over to the Department of State Services.
HAPPYNAIJA learnt that the student identified as Rose joined other corps
members deployed to Zamfara State for Batch C Stream 1 orientation course
which ended on Monday November 26 with a fake certificate she obtained
from another university in Benin Republic.
While reacting to the development, NYSC Director-General, Brig-Gen Shuaibu
Ibrahim stated that the student was nabbed after her institution alerted them
after she posted her photographs in NYSC uniform in the Zamfara camp.
The NYSC DG said: “On Friday, one of the universities in Cotonou, Benin Republic saw their 200-Level student in the NYSC uniform on the social media. She is supposed to be a 200-Level of the university studying journalism.
“But she went and purchased a fake certificate from another Benin Republic
university and now served in the camp in Zamfara. So, her classmates saw
her on social media and raised the alarm to the university, which then alerted
and wrote me.
“The university said they recognised the efforts of the scheme in nabbing
fake graduates and they were not a party to her fake certificate.
“So we got her arrested in Zamfara. She was brought to Abuja and we have
arranged with the DSS to take her away.”
