The man captioned the post with “NYSC promises to deal with any corp member who abuses the NYSC uniform right or wrong?”

A green cap she has on is a total departure from the ash face cap that the service gives members. While it may seem like a fashion statement, it is not the standard dressing of the paramilitary institution.
