Stop dehumanising Corps members, Sports Ministry tells army personnel

By Olawale Ajimotokan

The Ministry of Youth and Sports Development has urged all army and para-military personnel to be re-oriented and cease dehumanizing actions against National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members across the country.

The appeal was on the heel of an unfortunate incident that occurred on July 28, 2021 in Cross River State, where a female youth corps member was dehumanized as revealed in a video.

In a statement on Friday, the sports ministry said it had received full briefing from the Director General of the NYSC about the unfortunate incident.

The NYSC and the Nigerian Army authorities have since commenced investigation of the said incident and the officer involved as evidenced by the statement released by the Army authorities.

It also praised the Nigerian Army DHQ, for issuing a statement condemning the dehumanizing of the corps member as highly unprofessional and unacceptable.

“The ministry also condemns in very strong terms this incident. We believe and have been assured that the Army with its discipline and commitment to professional ethics will make sure justice is served.

“The ministry wants to further urge that all Army and para-military personnel be re-oriented and be asked to stop any such dehumanizing actions against corps members across the country,” it said.

It added that the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has further directed that henceforth close monitoring of all camps be intensified to avoid similar occurrences.
