Twelve National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members were involved in a ghastly motor accident in Kankara Local Government Area of Katsina State.
Three of the corps members died on the spot, while the others were rushed to a nearby hospital.
One of the three corps members who died on the spot was Ndem Jacinta Chineye, a graduate of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, who was serving at the High Court of Justice.
Prior to her demise, the deceased corps member posted pictures of herself on her Facebook page, with the caption:
“Never say never,
Life is a basket of surprises,
I am a living witness.
