Nigerian singer Davido has been sanctioned by the National Youth Service Corps for violating camp rules during the mandatory three-week orientation camp.
Concise News gathered that the scheme had to “dekit” the artiste for “absconding” from the camp during the orientation camp, which brought to an end his participation in the 2018 Batch ‘B’ Stream II in Lagos State, where he had been posted.
A source told Saturday Punch that “The NYSC was constrained to “dekit” Davido for violating the rules guiding conduct and activities in the camp.
“As a matter of fact, he absconded because he was away from the camp without permission. That prompted the Corps to issue him a query which was sent from Abuja. So, he is no longer a serving corps member.”
It was learned that artiste violated many of the scheme’s regulations including bringing vehicles into the orientation camp; disclosing official information; engaging in private practice; taking part in partisan politics and reporting late for duty.
However, it was also gathered that he may be remobilised for the scheme.
While replying to a post on Instagram during the week, the artiste had said that his NYSC programme had been terminated.
He later deleted the comment from the post made by a popular entertainment promoter King Smade.
While reacting, the NYSC Director of Information, Adenike Adeyemi, told Saturday PUNCH, in a response to an enquiry, that the scheme had communicated with Davido over his activities during his service year.
However, she did not say what punishment had been meted out to him for breaking several bylaws.
