The State Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Kano State, Alhaji Landan Baba, disclosed during interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), following Batch B 2016 passing out parade that was held yesterday, said that about 21 Corps members serving in Kano State have been slammed with service year extension for various acts of indiscipline.

The Coordinator said “Eight out of the 21 corps members are from the Stream one, 13 of them are from the Stream 2 while 10 corps members would repeat few weeks or months.

“On a sad note, we lost a male and a female corps members, Shuaibu Yahuza from Bauchi State and Happiness Emmanuel from Enugu State, both of the Stream 1,” he said.

According to him, affected corps members were punished for either absconding from their places of primary assignment or they were absent for more than three months without permission or any concrete reason.
