The death of a youth corps member, Charity Thilza, has been confirmed by NYSC’s press director, Abosede Aderibigbe.

Thilza was a 25-year-old corps member serving in Abuja where she was reportedly shot at about 3a.m. on Monday, May 1.

She was reportedly on her way back from a nightclub, ‘The Caribbean’ in Wuse 2, when she was shot.

The graduate of Linguistics and English from University of Maiduguri was said to be with four others when robbers attacked them.

They were in a ‘flashy car’ when the robbers came after them, shooting at their vehicle during the chase.

She got hit by a bullet

Thilza got hit by one of the bullets, and died before her friends were able to reach a hospital.

‘When they were coming back around 3a.m in a flashy car, armed robbers trailed them. When they could not get them, they shot at the car and the bullets hit her.

‘They tried rushing her to the National Hospital, Abuja, but she died on the way,’ Aderibigbe said.

It was also gathered that Charity and four friends, simply identified as Lola, Bisi, Pooja (an Indian) and a man had attended a show at the club, where Nigerian rap star, Phyno, performed on Sunday.

Thilza died only three days to the NYSC ‘passing-out parade,’ which would have marked the completion of her one-year program, held yesterday, Thursday.
