An NYSC corps member serving in Abuja, Linda Angela Igwetu was on Wednesday killed by a Special Anti Robbery Squad SARS operative just one day to her passing out.

Linda was shot while she was hanging out with her friends to celebrate the completion of her one year National Service. When she was returning home around 3:00 AM, Operative Benjamin Peters, a policeman attached to SARS shot at the vehicle she was in and the bullet hit her by the side. Linda was rushed to the Garki Hospital, Abuja but the doctors refused to treat her insisting that they must get a police report before commencing treatment despite the presence of policemen.
The young corps member who should have passed out of the NYSC with her colleagues today was left to bleed to death.
I think it is time Nigerians stand up against these devilish SARS operatives. If the government cannot guarantee the safety of corps members, the NYSC scheme should be scrapped or better still government should heed to the cries of Nigerians and scrap the evil SARS unit.
