The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, which made the announcement, said the deceased was with call-up number RV/15B/5539.

According to a statement on Monday, Mr. Samuel, who served at GCSS Ukpeliede, was shot dead by unknown gunmen in Ahoada West Local Government Area.
“The murder of this patriotic young man, who was an orphan, is primitive, barbaric, and ungodly; and should be strongly condemned by all well-meaning Nigerians.
“The NYSC shall work with relevant agencies to ensure that the perpetrators of this heinous act are fished out and made to face the full wrath of the law.
“We consider Okonta Samuel’s death as a great loss, not only to his immediate family, but also to all of us in the NYSC family and the entire nation”.
The service then prayed for the repose of his soul and for the family to have the fortitude to bear the loss.
