A corps member identified as Bright has died at the orientation camp of the National Youth Service Corps in Osun State.
Bright’s colleague, who had been traumatised by his death, made the revelation on Facebook.
Narrating the events that led to his death, the colleague, Lawrence Echezona, said the corps member died in his sleep over the weekend.
His post read, “It’s a pity for us that are in Ede camp. May your soul rest in peace, Bright. He slept the day before yesterday and couldn’t wake up in the morning.”
In another response in the comment section, one Ekpueke Mathew, wrote, “RIP Corper Bright, who died during his orientation programme at Ede camp, Osun State.”
Bright’s picture was also attached to the post.
The state Public Relations Officer, NYSC, Funmi Okundaye, confirmed the incident but refrained from giving further details about the circumstances surrounding his death.
“What you read is that a corps member passed on in his sleep? That was exactly what happened; there is no other thing to add. Nothing to add or remove from it,” Okundaye said.
