The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig-Gen. Zakari Kazaure, said corpers traveling out of their places of primary assignment without obtaining permission are breaking the regulation guiding the service.

Kazure stated this against the backdrop of the deaths of nine corps member who drowned in River Mayo-Selbe, near the Gashaka falls in Gashaka Local Government Area of Taraba State while on picnic.

Speaking on Tuesday at the Ekiti State Permanent Orientation Camp, the NYSC boss cautioned corpers against making night and authorized journeys.

“You all have to avoid night journeys and other unnecessary journeys for that matter.  Remember that before you embark on any journey, the need arises that you first inform your immediate supervisors and obtain necessary permits

“A graduate is expected by the society to be above board. I, therefore, want you to please join hands with me to ensure that the tragic incident in Taraba is the very last of such,” NAN quoted him as saying.
