Blessing Nwapa, the kidnapped Batch A Stream 1 female youth corps member has fortunately regained her freedom.

The The National Youth Service Corps in Nasarawa State (NYSC)  Coordinator in the State, Hajiya Zainab Isah, who confirmed the release of the corps member to newsmen in Lafia on Tuesday, said that Nwapa from Abia State, was kidnapped on Friday , Oct. 6, in Udege Mbeki community of Kokona Local Government Area.

“She was kidnapped on Friday on her way from the bank in company with some other corps members. They were robbed and after that she was picked up and taken away . She was the only female among them that day ,” she said.

She explained that the NYSC in collaboration with the State Government , security agencies and the Traditional Ruler of Osu Ojiri , Alhaji Halilu Bala – Usman , effected her release.

“Gov . Tanko Al- Makura played a vital role in securing the release of the corps member through the Osu Ojiri whom he communicated with because it happened in his domain. The governor directed the Commissioner of Police to ensure that the corps member was unhurt and untouched

“I want to thank the governor for the fatherly role he played in securing the freedom of the corps member. I also thank the Osu Ojiri of Undege Mbeki , all the security agencies and even the vigilance group in the community. I just want to thank everybody for the vital roles they played.
I also thank the Director-General of NYSC , Brig. Gen. Sule Kazaure . He also played an important role . He gave me the moral support,” she said.

The coordinator, however , refuted claims that the youth corps member was raped by her kidnappers.

She said that all necessary medical investigations carried out at Federal Medical Centre in Keffi proved otherwise.

“The corp member was never raped. I have visited the hospital with her and have the result proving that she is medically okay.

“So , I want to dispel that rumour that she was raped. Most importantly , the corp member has used her own mouth to say she was not raped. Yes she was beaten but never raped because at the time she was kidnapped , she was bleeding heavily.

“So , when they saw that she was menstruating , they didn’t want her again and started beating her . I can authoritatively tell you she was rescued unhurt, ” she said.
