The National Youth Service Corp says 95 per cent of deaths recorded by serving Corps members is due to road accidents.Brig . Gen . Suleiman Kazaure , the Director General of NYSC , said this while addressing corps members observing their orientation camp course in Katsina on Monday .
“ From the records before the Directorate , several corps members have lost their lives , while on fruitless journeys .
