NYSC arrests 95 persons with fake academic credentials

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has lamented the presentation of fake academic credentials and attempts to smuggle in unqualified candidates into the mobilisation list.

This was disclosed by Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, NYSC Director-General,  during a pre-mobilisation workshop for Batch C in Minna.

He said, “It had been discovered that names of unqualified persons are included in the Senate/Academic Board approved list uploaded on the NYSC registration portal by some corps producing institutions.

“This is very worrisome as it amounts to betrayal of trust or gross negligence which will not be tolerated.”

About 95 fake students were arrested with fake documents in the last batch of corps members.

He noted that the presentation of fake credentials for mobilisation is prohibited by the NYSC Act which prescribes a four-year jail term for offenders..

He said “Very soon, we will mobilise prospective corps members. I want to appeal to persons with intention to present fake certificates not to show up.”
