The NAF jet landed in Victor Attah International Airport, Uyo to deliver the corpses. What a life! They couldn't afford flight but now being conveyed on NAF jet as corpses.

The bodies of five prospective National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members who died in a road accident have been returned to Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

The remains were transported from Abuja in a military aircraft, drawing angry reactions from Nigerians.

The five prospective corps members died in a road accident on their way to the NYSC camp in Katsina State

Their remains were ferried home in a C-130 Nigerian Air Force aircraft which landed at the Victor Attah International Airport, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, on Wednesday.

The after-death heroic treatment done to the graduates angered some Nigerians who went on social media to vent their anger on the country’s leaders.

Some of them expressed shock that the bodies of the young graduates who died in a road accident were airlifted home – when the government could not provide air ticket for them when they were alive.

In her comment on a Facebook post, Sarah Abia wrote, “What is the need? What joy can it bring now?

“Dying by road, transported to be buried by aircraft.

“Nonsense!!!!

“Oh God deliver us from hypocrisy of this nation. May their souls rest in peace.”

For Womi Iwara, “There respect the death than the living, those people may not have tested aircraft before but now that they are death there are coming back with aircraft, wicked world, honoring them as if after service there would have been job for them, rest in peace my fellow hustling Nigerians.”

Emem Okon said, “Why didn’t they put them in the aircraft to the camp.

“Now their dead bodies enter (sic) the aircraft.

“Nigerian leader’s God will judge some of you since you all have the abilities to do good and help but u refuse.

“I pray God comfort their families and Friends.”

For Everest William, “The same aircraft that they won’t use to convey them, when they are going for service.

“Now that they’re dead, that’s when they consider them worthy of been flown in an aircraft.

The Accident

The bus carrying the young graduates was travelling at night from Uyo, Nigeria’s South-south, to Katsina, in the North-west region, when the accident occurred along Abuja-Abaji-Kwali Expressway last Wednesday around 4 a.m.

Four of the victims were from Akwa Ibom State, while one was from Imo State.

Two of the deceased, Innocent Ukpere and Victor Akpan, were graduates of Mass Communication from Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic.

The other three, Miracle Asuquo, graduate of Psychology; Stella Ekikoh, graduate of Sociology and Anthropology; and Ezuruike Coleman, a graduate of History and International Studies, were graduates of the University of Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

They are expected to be buried today.

Rip to the corners who were cut down in their prime due to a failed nation called nigeria

This is the kind of news that give our uncivilised and barbaric minded cohabitors upnorth joy.

They refused to be civilized and become responsible 21st century humans,but rather they choose to turn the country upside down just because of cows.

The cow rearing tribe is cursed

Baba lifeless and his ill luck. Tueh!!

RIP young lads. Your country failed you. Ordinary good roads, they cannot provide. Ordinary flight tickets to ur places of camping, your country cannot provide.

In my next world, I rather come back to life as a hippopotamus than coming back as a Nigerian

They won't cancel this nonsense scheme because the influential person who gets the contract to supply khaki, boots and other costume won't want it to end.


Influential politicians that get their own percentage from that man who is in charge of printing of magazines won't want to see it end.


Your State, Zonal and Local Government coordinators will not want it to stop, those cows and bags of rice donated by Emirs, Kings and chiefs of your States of deployment na dem get am.

If dem cancel am how NYSC DG wan take get NYSC budget and allocation

Mugu money go round


RIP youths, u scaled through your respective Unis but the Government killed you


May God console your parents who are suppose to be eating the fruits of the labour

But why do we always do this as a people? It’s after poor souls have been wasted through sudden death as a result of bad road and poor infrastructure that we now FLY their dead bodies for state burial.

RIP to the dead. May God forgive their transgressions and accept their souls.
