Muhammad Fadah, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) director-general, has commiserated with the family of Chiwendu Alago, a corps member who died recently in Bayelsa.

This is contained in a statement issued by NYSC spokesman Eddy Megwa on Saturday in Abuja.

The statement said Mr Fadah visited the deceased’s family residence in Umuahia, Abia.

According to him, Ms Alago, an indigene of Umudim Ngodo Isuochi, Umunneochie local government area of Abia, was a serving corps member in Bayelsa.
