A concerned corp member who was affected, Aniebiet Anie Udo, took to his Facebook page to show the condition of corp members in the camp.
Udo wrote: “NYSC staff and Soldiers pursued us and we slept on the Ground.This is how we slept Tonight
“We were pursued from the Registration Hall floor we’ve been sleeping on for 3 days straight to sleep in a tiny overcrowded room containing over 28 people most times with no fan
“When we said that it was wrong to pursue us because their Boss was coming on Sunday we were left to our fate. This is because the camp admitted more people than its capacity.
