The National Youth Service Corps has said that there is no plan to deploy corps members to Niger Republic to fight a war to restore democracy in the country.
The NYSC Director, Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa, said this in a statement on Saturday.
Megwa said this while responding to a video circulating on social media, alleging that corps members would be deployed to Niger Republic.
Megwa stated: “The management wishes to state that there is no iota of truth in the story fabricated by the purveyor, a skit and content creator.
“The public, especially youth corps members, prospective members and their parents should disregard the story, which borders on criminality in its entirety.
“Content and skit makers are strongly advised to desist from spreading false information capable of subverting the peace of the nation.”
The NYSC spokesperson added that law enforcement agencies would stop at nothing to bring the purveyors of the story to justice.
There was a coup in Niger Republic on July 26, where Nigerien soldiers toppled the government of democratically elected President Mohamed Bazoum from power.
The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has since been making effort to restore democratic government to the country.
