Three 2014/2015 Batch B members of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, whose names were withheld would repeat their service year for misconduct in Taraba State.
This development was made known on Friday, July 3, 2015 by the stata Coordinator, Mr Tumba Freeman at a news conference in Jalingo.
According to Freeman, the affected corps members were being punished for absenteeism at their Places of Primary Assignments, for three consecutive months.
He added that three other corps members died in the course of the service as a result of medical complications which resulted from an accident they had during the service year.
The coordinator further revealed that ten corps members received awards for their meritorious service during the service year.
He said, “We rewarded them for their excellent service which they totally deserved.
“It may interest you to know that Taraba came second in terms of the number of corps members that received honors in the country.
“What we are simply doing is to recognise their contributions in community development, and to encourage other corps members to follow suit.’’
