Eddy Megwa, the NYSC Director of Press and Public Relations, issued a statement on Saturday in Abuja, responding to a circulating video on social media that falsely alleged the deployment of corps members to Niger Republic.

Megwa emphasized that the story was entirely fabricated by the individual responsible for the video, who is a skit and content creator. He assured the public, particularly NYSC members, prospective members, and their parents, that there is no truth in the claim, and it should be disregarded completely.

Moreover, Megwa warned content creators and skit makers against spreading false information that could potentially disrupt the peace of the nation, urging them to be responsible in their communications.

He further reassured that law enforcement agencies are committed to ensuring that those behind the dissemination of such false information face the consequences of their actions and are brought to justice.

In other news, Niger Republic experienced a coup on July 26, resulting in the ousting of democratically elected President Mohamed Bazoum from power by Nigerien soldiers. The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is currently taking steps to restore democratic governance in the country.

As the situation unfolds, the NYSC remains focused on its core mission of providing national service to young graduates within Nigeria’s borders, and there are no plans for any involvement in foreign military affairs.
