NYSC members to acquire martial arts skills
Deputy Director, Publications of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Mr. Peter Atilola, has said NYSC members were being trained on martial arts to defend themselves when the need arose.
Atitiola told newsmen in Abuja: “NYSC is collaborating with all states, local government areas and security agencies to provide adequate security and protection for them and their property.
“Apart from provision of security tips handbook, NYSC members are also being trained on martial arts to defend themselves when the need arises.”
The initiative, which was first adopted by Ogun State directorate of NYSC, has, however, been greeted with mixed feelings by old and new NYSC members.
