53 suspects arrested for looting Kubwa NYSC camp – IGP

NEWS DIGEST – Fifty-three persons have been arrested in connection with the looting at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) camp in Kubwa, the Federal Capital Territory.

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, announced this on Friday during an inspection tour of the camp with the Director-General of the NYSC, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim.

The NYSC DG, however, reiterated that the camp was not housing any palliative.

What was looted were kits and mattresses for the corp members who were billed to resume in two weeks.

According to him, so far, some of the youths have voluntarily returned what they looted.

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