Nasarawa State Police apprehend a Fraudulent NYSC imposter, Ogeh Bethel Chibuife, for Illegally Entering the Magaji Dan Yumusa Orientation Camp, Keffi, the state capital.

“Investigation revealed that the suspect was a student of Ebonyi State University, Faculty of Management Science and Department of Public Administration.

“She confessed that she was supposed to have graduated in 2022, but had a lot of spillover courses, and in a bid to cover up the lies she had made to her parents, she went to the market and purchased NYSC uniforms/other items meant for corps members and sneaked into the camp in order to take pictures and send to her parents before nemesis caught up with her,” he said.

Nansel further stated that the accused faces charges of criminal trespass, impersonation, and forgery in the Chief Magistrate Court in Keffi.

Commissioner of Police Umar Shehu Nadada cautions aspiring imitators of these fake corps members to think twice, emphasizing that the law will inevitably catch up with them.
