The state coordinator, NYSC Katsina State, Alhaji Ahidjo Yahaya, who confirmed the development on Saturday, disclosed how the fake female corps members were caught.
He said, “The two corps members were caught through a security report from the DG, NYSC, Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim.
“I got a security report from the DG that the two of them were carrying fake certificates. Based on that, he set out the security network to trap them.”
Yahaya added that the two corps members had allegedly confessed to committing the offence.
He added “We will like to follow due process in handling the case by arraigning them before the camp court today before they would be decamped today (Saturday.)”
