20 NYSC members withdrawn over cult attacks in Bayelsa community

20 corps members from Famgbe Community, in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State have been withdrawn by the National Youth Service Corps over an attack by suspected cultists.
NYSC directed the withdrawal of the corps members following the reported invasion of the lodge by suspected cultists who attacked corps members, tied them and carted away their belongings.
An eyewitness account said the hoodlums after carting away their belongings, inflicted severe injuries on some the corps members with machetes, threatening to kill them if they report to the police.
Confirming the incident, the Public Relations Officer of NYSC in the State, Matthew Ngobua, said he has been informed of the withdrawal of corps members serving in Famgbe but that he has not been briefed on what led to their withdrawal.
The youth president of Famgbe Community, Agbasa Ogilizibe, has however pleaded with the NYSC to rescind its decision and deployed the corps members back to the community as youths of the community have put necessary arrangements in place to forestall a future reoccurrence of the ugly incident.
The NYSC had in March threatened to withdraw corps members from the state if insecurity of members persists after cultists killed two serving corps members in Swali, also in Yenagoa Local Government Area .
