Head of the GYM, Mr. Alex Egbe told our correspondent that the club had 25 active members that could be engaged meaningfully in sports, and as personal body guards during occasions.
Egbe hinted that the skillful and able-bodied men trained daily as weight lifters and disclosed that their members who participated in body building competition during National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) event in Plateau State won in various categories.
