NYSC urged people to disregard the news, saying no corps member died in the tragedy.
PRESS STATEMENT
RE: COLLAPSED BUILDING AT IBADAN STREET, EBUTE METTA AREA OF LAGOS
The attention of the Management of National Youth Service Corps has been drawn to a piece of misleading online information that says one of the victims of the collapsed building at Ebute Metta Area of Lagos, ADEKEMI ZAINB ADEKUNLE, was a serving Corps Member.
From our findings, and according to the deceased’s elder sister, the late ADEKEMI ZAINAB ADEKUNLE who graduated from the History Department, Tai Solrarin University of Education, Ijagun, Ijebu-Ode in Ogun State was yet to be mobilised into the National Youth Service Corps, as at the time of the incident.
She was in the process of getting her certificate from her institution of graduation before the unfortunate incident happened.
It was also discovered that the deceased was with her parent on a visit by the time the building collapsed.
While the Scheme condoles and shares in the pain of the bereaved families, it also prays that God should repose the souls of the departed.
Furthermore, the Management of the National Youth Service Corps enjoins all pressmen, especially online reporters to be objective in their reportage, verify claims and uphold the ethics of professional journalism in their news coverage to avoid sensational journalism that can mislead the general public.
Thank you.
