Corps Members Sent Packing From Kebbi NYSC Camp For Smoking Weed
A group of corps members have been sent packing from the Kebbi camp of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) after they were allegedly caught smoking weed during the 3 weeks orientation course.
The corps members were also accused of making use of other drug substances, according to the caption of an Instagram post, in which they can be seen leaving the camp.
In the video, which was shared by Instablog9ja on Wednesday, August 1, with the caption “Corps members decamped after allegedly being caught smoking weed and other drugs at the Kebbi State NYSC camp,” the decamped corps members can be seen leaving the camp premises.
The apparently unremorseful corps members can also be seen waving at other corps members – who were lined up in their platoons – as they responded to the “bye, bye” gesture from their colleagues.
Glance below what the NYSC said in its Bye-Laws, with respect to this:
1. Not smoke, chew anything whatsoever, make or answer calls, while on parade and at any other time, not smoke in a prohibited area or throw lighted cigarette butts or lighted matches about the premises carelessly.
Any member who flouts this rule shall be tried by the Camp Court and, if found guilty, be liable to extra drill for thirty (30) minutes.
2. Not be in possession of Hard drugs like cocaine, Indian hemp, heroine etc.
Any member who is in possession of Hard drugs shall be reported to the police for prosecution.
