Nazir Muhammad Yahaya, a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) participant, was killed in a car accident while traveling to Kaduna State.
At the time this report was written, the incident’s specifics were still hazy, however it was learned that the accident happened on Wednesday, July 13.
Friends claim that the Batch B, Stream 1 corps member was on his way to Kaduna after finishing the three-week orientation program at the NYSC camp in Adamawa State.
Friends, old classmates, and coworkers have posted condolences on Facebook in the meantime.
“Rest In Peace Nazir Muhammad Yahaya. Sometime, I ask myself this rhetorical question “what is Life”. My friend called me on Monday and he was lamenting that his redeployment plans went south instead of north,” one Jeremiah Damina wrote.
“I told him to brace up and take the posting by Faith. But, here I am today with a shocking news that my friend/brother after all the sweat and blood pains we endured to make it out of School/NYSC and finally begin to establish ourselves for beauty and for colour. Now the Dreams/plans are abated. I pray my friend finds rest in Aljannatul Firdaus with the Almighty”
