NYSC mourns corps member killed in Ogun while traveling to orientation camp

Eunice Chioma Igweike, a corps member who was purportedly slain while traveling to the orientation camp in Sagamu, Ogun State, has been mourned by the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

The deceased, a member of the 2022 Batch B corps, was abducted on Wednesday, July 20, 2022, as she headed for the three-week orientation course at the Ogun State NYSC camp. On July 21, 2022, she was discovered dead with critical components of her body gone.

Security authorities have started an inquiry into Igweike’s death, according to a statement released on Saturday, July 30, by NYSC Director (Press and Public Relations), Eddy Megwa.

Read the statement below;

“The attention of the NYSC management has been drawn to an online publication with the above caption making the rounds in the social media. To put the issues raised in proper perspective, the scheme indeed lost a prospective corps member by name, Miss Eunice Chioma Igweike, who set out for NYSC permanent orientation camp, Sagamu, Ogun State, having been deployed to the state for the national service under the 2022 Batch B service year

“A call by her elder brother to the NYSC on July 20, 2022 reporting that he had not been able to reach her sister on phone since her departure to NYSC Ogun camp from Aba, Abia State, prompted the scheme to contact the security agencies to know her whereabouts

“Sadly, on Thursday, July 21 2022, her remains which were intact, and not mutilated as reported in the media, were recovered along Sagamu-Imota Road and deposited in the morgue.

“The NYSC feels highly diminished by the death of Eunice Chioma Igweike, a promising young Nigerian that would have been a great ambassador of her family, contributing her quota to nation building. The Director-General NYSC, Brigadier General Mohammed Fadah, management and the entire members of NYSC family commiserate with Igweike Family on the demise of the young lady”.
