The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Wednesday morning shut down all orientation camps nationwide over fears of the coronavirus.
The Batch A corps members began their orientation on 10th March and were expected to be in their camps for 21 days, but as learnt, that they will be getting their letters posting them to their places of primary assignment, just one week after camping
The coronavirus has so far killed over 7000 persons globally and three cases have been confirmed in Nigeria, although no death has been recorded in the country.
Corps members in the camps were, however, shocked when they were told in the middle of the night that the camps had closed and they were all to receive their letters to places of primary assignment.
The corps members said they were informed that the development was put in place due to the coronavirus crisis.
