Two members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) have been dismissed from the 3-week orientation course for the 2019 Batch C Stream 1 in Ebonyi State, after they refused to wear trousers supplied them.

They had declined the trousers as it was against their religious beliefs where only skirts were allowed for women. 

Spokesperson of the NYSC in the state, Ngozi Ukwuoma, in a statement made available to newsmen, said that the duo were spotted by the camp director, Mrs. Isu Josephine, and her team during routine inspection wearing white t-shirt and white skirt.

She gave the names of the two corps members as Okafor Love Obianuju with registration number EB/19C/0523 and Odji Oritsetsolaye (EB/19C/0530).

The statement partly read:

“When they were accosted and interrogated, they disclosed that they could not wear the white shorts and the trousers given to them by the NYSC since it was against their faith.

Efforts were however made by the office of the Camp Director to make them see reason why they must obey the rules and regulations guiding the orientation and NYSC, but all efforts to do that proved futile.

The corps members were queried and subsequently made to face the camp court, where they were found guilty, having made it categorically clear that they were ready to bear the consequences of their actions,” she said.

Mrs Ukwuoma noted that the court recommendations were submitted to the camp Management and the Camp Director was directed to de-kit the Corps Members.

“They were de-kitted in the presence of security agents, who also escorted them to the gate as they left the camp”, the spokesperson added.
