NYSC Reacts to Viral Video of Female Corps Member Punished by School Proprietress

NYSC Investigates Viral Video of Female Corps Member Forced to Kneel in School

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) is investigating a viral video of a female corps member who was asked to kneel in school.

The video showed the young being punished for an offence which was not clearly explained. She was allegedly forced to kneel down by a school proprietress.

According to the dialogue heard in the short footage, it seemed that the corps member was being punished for her failure to work.

From the NYSC member’s claims in her native Yoruba dialect, she said she had alluded to menstruation symptoms.

The proprietress argued that if she had explained, she would have understood because she is also a woman.

The video has infuriated Nigerians who alleged a habit among employers of bullying corp members at their place of primary assignment (PPA).

The NYSC has said that it is investigating the matter and will take appropriate action against anyone found culpable.

Public Outrage

The video has sparked outrage on social media, with many Nigerians condemning the school proprietress for her actions.

Some have called for the proprietress to be sacked, while others have called for the school to be shut down.

The NYSC has said that it is taking the matter seriously and will ensure that justice is served.


The incident is a reminder of the need to protect the rights of corps members. Corps members should not be subjected to any form of harassment or bullying at their places of primary assignment.

The NYSC should also do more to monitor the welfare of corps members and ensure that they are treated with respect.
