The call followed a motion of urgent public importance moved by the Chief Whip of the Senate, Olusola Adeyeye (APC Central).
The Senate therefore mandated its Committee on Sports and Youth Development to conduct a thorough and comprehensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of three corps members in Kano, Bayelsa and Zamfara recently.
The Senator also expressed deep concern that experienced medical personnel were not in existence in the orientation camps.
He added that inexperienced medical doctors undergoing national service were usually engaged to attend to the medical needs of corps members.
The lawmaker further expressed concern that an orientation camp that housed over 300,000 corps members could not boast of modern facilities to cater for the needs of corps members.
He also decried a situation where NYSC officials were not living up to their responsibilities, adding that the development had exposed the corps members to all manner of dangers.
He said, “The Senate notes with sadness the death of three Corps members: Miss Ifedolapo Amoke Oladepo who died in Kano NYSC Orientation Camp and Miss Elechi Chinyerem, who died in Bayelsa Orientation Camp both on Tuesday, November 29.
“Also, Mr Ukeme died in Zamfara Orientation Camp on Thursday, December 1.
“We are further concerned that NYSC officials are not up and doing in their official duties as they expose these Corps members to all manner of dangers.”
