The University of Agriculture, Markurdi and Benue state University has been banned by the National Youth Service Corps from mobilizing their graduating students for the one year mandatory youth service for the next two years.
This was due to the alleged discovery by NYSC that the management of the two schools help students to manipulate their age to make them eligible for the one year program.
