Soldiers arrest suspects for looting NYSC Camp

However, security operatives comprising officers of the Nigeria Police Force and soldiers have arrested some persons for vandalising and attempting to loot some properties of the NYSC Camp, Kubwa in the Federal Capital Territory.

The Director-General of the NYSC, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, while speaking at the Camp on Tuesday, October 27, 2020, after the security operatives arrested the rampaging youths, stressed that the camp is not in possession of any COVID-19 palliatives.

He, therefore, appealed to the youths to stop attacking NYSC camps under the guise of looking for palliatives.

This comes in the wake of a series of looting that has occurred across the country in the past couple of days, even as miscreants hijacked the #EndSARS protests.

Across the country, major malls, shops, private businesses, and even vehicles have been burnt down – prisoners have escaped from jails, following what started as peaceful protests, demanding an end to police brutality and extrajudicial killings, as well as better governance in the country.
