The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has arrested a 200 level student at a university in the Benin Republic who allegedly obtained a fake degree certificate and was undergoing the orientation exercise at the Zamfara State camp.
Findings by campusbiz revealed that the scheme apprehended the student identified as Rose last Friday. She was undergoing the Batch C Stream 1 orientation course before she was arrested.
Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, the NYSC Director-General, confirmed the arrest of Rose to pressmen.
He stated that the Benin Republic University wrote to NYSC when its officials discovered her on social media posting her photographs in the scheme’s uniform in the Zamfara camp.
He also noted that the 200L had been brought to the FCT, Abuja, and handed over to officials of the Department of State Services for further investigations.
The DG warned that the scheme would do anything to clamp down on fake graduates and certificates, adding that anyone arrested would be handed over for prosecution.
