The NYSC Director, Press and Public Relations, Mrs Adeyemi Adenike, who made this known in a statement on Monday, said that the nine corps members on Saturday Aug. 4 involved in the accident left their places of primary assignment on a picnic at the site.  She stated that they got drowned due to the sudden increase in water volume and surge.
