Corps Members preparing to leave the temporary National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) camp on Monday in Paikoro, Niger State, were confronted by robbers, Punch reports.

The robbers had pretended to be NYSC officials, carting away bed sheets, fans, and mattresses.

Corps members, upon discovering the robbers were not officials, raised alarm and some of the stolen items were traced to the staff quarters of the Government Secondary School.

Theresa Arokoyo, the NYSC coordinator for the state, complained that the incident was a common occurrence. She said the camp was always invaded anytime the corps members were on a break, as the camp was a temporary site.

Ahmed Ketso, the Niger State Acting Governor, has said that the government is making efforts to ensure that the permanent orientation camp is ready before the end of 2017.

One person has been arrested in connection with the robbery.
