A female corps member at the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) in Emure-Ekiti camp, Ekiti, has been delivered of a baby girl.
The corps member is among the 653 people deployed to the state as part of the 2020 batch B stream 1A.
According to NAN, Rose Onoja, the state NYSC spokesperson, broke the news of the child’s birth in a statement on Monday.
Onoja said the new mother had to be rushed to the clinic at the camp soon after her registration as she was falling into labour.
“From the Clinic, she was taken to the General Hospital, Emure, where she was delivered of the baby. Both mother and baby are in good condition,” she said.
The development comes just as the NYSC in the state introduced a ‘camp court’ to try erring corps members.
Mary Chikezie, the state NYSC coordinator, while speaking on the introduction of the ‘camp court’, said it was part of new strategies aimed at instilling discipline among corps members. She also warned against acts that contravene the rules and regulations of the NYSC.
“We urge all corps members to adhere to the rules. As a matter of fact there is a Camp Court for the trial of any erring one,” she added.
