A female member of the National Youth Service Corps, Miss Elechi Chiyerom has died in a mysterious circumstance, at the Bayelsa State Orientation Camp in Kaiama, Kolokuma-Opokum area of the state.
She was confirmed dead on Tuesday, after she reportedly bled and vomited on arrival at the camp. Elechi, a graduate of the Ignatius Azuru University of Education, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, was confirmed dead about 9pm on Tuesday five days after arriving at the camp.
Some corps members claimed the deceased on arrival at the camp last Thursday looked “terribly sick” and could not participate in some opening sessions at the camp.
Some officials of the NYSC claimed that the development was a case of “non-disclosure” of state of health by the corps member.
The deceased corps member reportedly relapsed into ill-health and was rushed to the sick bay of the camp at about 8pm on Tuesday.
It was learnt that a search on her hostel section showed signs of excessive bleeding with her clothing and sanitary pads soaked in blood.
A source said, “The doctor at the NYSC camp’s clinic immediately referred her to the state-owned Diette-Koki Memorial Hospital in the Opolo, Yenagoa, where she was confirmed dead.”
