Two NYSC Corps Members have been reportedly killed by suspected cultists, leaving one critically injured during an attack on their residence in Bayelsa.
Bight News reports that the incident occurred on Wednesday night along School road, Swali in Yenagoa Local Government Area of the state.
The Bayelsa State Commissioner of Police, Mr Olusholla David, who visited the state NYSC Secretariat to commiserate with the State NYSC Coordinator, Mrs Lotto Bolade, on Thursday in Yenagoa, described the killing as “shocking”.
The commissioner however assured the NYSC of a rejigged security strategy to ensure the safety of serving corp members in the state.
His words, “The police have briefed the State Governor, Seriake Dickson on the incident; there is nobody that will hear of the incident that will not be shocked.
“The corps members in the state may be scared, but please assure them that there will be improved security under my watch,” the CP stated.
In her response Mrs Lotto Bolade, Bayelsa NYSC Coordinator, decried the incessant attacks on corps members in the state, saying it as worrisome.
“These hoodlums have been attacking corps members serially. The Director General have had cause to write to the state governor and the matter reduced.
“There is no day we don’t record cases of attack against corps members,” she explained.
However, Bolade confirmed that the third injured corps member survived the attack. (NAN)
