Corper Battling For Life After Assault By Soldier In NYSC Camp

A corps member is currently battling for survival after he was allegedly assaulted yesterday at the Kaduna State NYSC Orientation Camp (Black Gold Camp).

The corper, set to complete his service next month, had been appointed to the brigade band to train the current corps members. 

However, at the end of the parade, he excused himself and was planning to leave when a female soldier stopped him and said he couldn’t go.

He allegedly tried to explain to the soldier that he had to leave, as he is not bounded by the camp rules, but the soldier started harassing him.

A male soldier later joined his colleague and kicked the corper, who fell and landed awkwardly on his head. The soldier was said to have pulled him up with his belt, raised him high and dropped him, making him faint immediately.


The corper was then rushed to the camp clinic, where preliminary assessment showed that he broke his neck in the process.

He was later rushed out of the camp to a clinic and it’s being rumoured that the young man is now between life and death.
