Ukeme Asuquo Monday, a first class graduate of Petroleum Engineering from the University of Uyo, died at the NYSC Camp in Zamfara state after suffering from Diarrhea yesterday December 1st.
This is the third case of recorded death in NYSC camps around the country in two weeks.
According to his friend, Victor Jerry Emah, Ukeme never wanted to go for service in Zamfara and said he was destabilized the moment he received his call-up letter. Ukeme was a brilliant student who won 4 scholarships as a student.
We mourn with Ukeme’s family and friends and also urge all NYSC clinics to do their best to pay attention to all corpers when they complain of illness.
We are also calling on the Federal Government to ensure these clinics have enough medical supplies to sustain our corpers.
