“I sent my condolence on behalf Osun parliament to the Oladepos over the death of young Ifedolapo who died at Kano NYSC orientation camp, and I want to assure the family that our parliament would certainly pick a bone with the NYSC on the matter until it is resolved in favour of justice for the deceased and her family”, Salaam vowed.
