Tragedy as five corps members reportedly drown on their way to their PPA in Calabar

A heartbreaking incident unfolded in Cross River State as five youth corps members tragically lost their lives.

A circulating video clip on social media reveals that the victims were en route to their respective places of primary assignment on Monday, June 5, when their bus tragically veered off a bridge, plunging into a river.

Regrettably, all passengers on board, including the corps members, succumbed to the water’s depths. The bodies of the deceased have been transferred to a local morgue.

Expressing her grief in the background, a female voice questions the merits of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme, citing the loss of many young Nigerians who have perished in the line of duty while serving their nation.

“I need to see the benefit of this NYSC scheme. What is all this? People are out there going through a lot of things… these corpers died. They were in my camp,” she mourned.
