Police Arrest Fake Corps member in Nasarawa


From Augustine Kuza, Lafia

The Nasarawa State Police Command has arrested and arraigned a fake Corps member before a Chief Magistrate Court in Keffi for the offence of Criminal Trespass, Impersonation and Forgery.

This was contained in a press release made available to our correspondent by the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, of the Nasarawa State Command, Dsp Ramhan Nansel in Lafia on Thursday.

The PPRO explained that a complaint was lodged at Keffi Divisional Headquarters by a Staff of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC); that a head count was conducted on all Corps members undergoing three weeks orientation exercise at Magaji Dan Yumusa Orientation Camp, Keffi.

Consequently, one Ogeh Bethel Chibuife ‘f’ 23yrs of age was found to have gained unlawful entrance into the camp and was arrested by Police operatives.

He said that investigation has revealed that the suspect was a student of Ebonyi State University, Faculty of Management Science and Department of Public Administration, who confessed that she was supposed to have graduated in 2022 but had a lot of spill over courses, and in a bid to cover up the lies she’d made to her parents, she went to the market and purchased NYSC uniforms/other items meant for Corps members and sneaked into the Camp in order to take pictures and send to her parents before nemesis caught up with her.

The Commissioner of Police, Nasarawa State Command, CP Umar Shehu Nadada hereby calls on all those nursing ambition to toe the path of these fake corps members to have a rethink as the long arm of the law will catch up with them.
