Contrary to a viral photo of a man with deep lacerations on his back purported to be a corps member serving in Zamfara, the real picture of the affected corps member has emerged.
The National Youths Service Corps, NYSC, had debunked the allegations on Tuesday.
The NYSC therefore displayed the real photo of the corps member, Esi Uwakwe, who was allegedly assaulted by a policeman in Zamfara State.
“Uwakwe, who was with us at the NYSC Headquarters yesterday, acknowledged the Scheme’s intervention in his case, and has since put the matter behind him.
“We remain committed to protecting Corps members wherever they are serving while also appealing to other stakeholders to show love and hospitality to them in their various service locations,” said a statement by the NYSC.
