“Consequently, one Ogeh Bethel Chibuife ‘f’ 23 years of age was found to have gained unlawful entrance into the camp and was arrested by Police Operatives.

“Investigation revealed that the suspect was a student of Ebonyi State University, Faculty of Management Science and Department of Public Administration.

“She confessed that she was supposed to have graduated in 2022 but had a lot of spillover courses, and in a bid to cover up the lies she’d made to her parents, she went to the market and purchased NYSC uniforms/other items meant for Corps members and sneaked into the Camp in order to take pictures and send to her parents before nemesis caught up with her, DSP Nansel said.
