NYSC Member Stabs his Boss in the Arm Over Refusal to Sign Clearance Form

One Godbless Nnaji undergoing the one-year National Youth Service Corps, NYSC scheme in Calabar, Cross Rivers state, has allegedly stabbed his boss for refusing to sign his monthly clearance form.

Nnaji, a lawyer, had reportedly tried to persuade his boss, Donald Archibong, in his private chambers in the Calabar-South axis of the state capital to sign his letter. On refusal, Nnaji resorted to violence. He was said to have broken the centre table in his boss’ office and used one of the pieces of glass to stab him on his right arm. According to Archibong, he absorbed Nnaji to work in his chambers in December 2015 and within the short period observed that the young barrister, who was called to the Nigerian Bar in 2015, had poor attitude towards work. Archibong, narrating his ordeal, said on Tuesday that a petition dated March 9, 2016, had already been written to the Director-General of NYSC through the state coordinator calling for necessary actions against Nnaji.

“I decided to write to the Cross River State NYSC secretariat via their zonal coordinator seeking for his recall and I decided to give a week of grace whether there would be show of repentance and when none was forthcoming, I sent out the letter on March 9. “An hour later, Barrister Nnaji barged into my office, demanding for his clearance for the month of March. I informed him that that would be quite impossible as I would not want to contradict myself, having asked for his recall on one hand.
