About twenty corps members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) posted
to Famgbe community a Suburb of Yenagoa, Bayelsa State Capital for their compulsory
one year service have reportedly been withdrawn from their host community.
The decision to withdraw them was made on Friday owing to insecurity and threats to their lives by armed youths terrorising the community.
A source said that some suspected cultists invaded the residence of the Corps Members, tied them and carted away with their belongings.
“After collecting their belongings, the hoodlums inflicted severe injuries on some the Corps Members with machetes, threatening to kill them if they dared to involve the police.”
Confirming the incident, the Public Relations Officer of NYSC in the State, Mr. Matthew Ngobua, said decision was taken by the Yenagoa Zonal Inspector.
“Yes, the Yenagoa Zonal Inspector of the NYSC confirmed to me that Corps Members serving in Famgbe Community have been withdrawn but he has not told me the reason why they were withdrawn.
