Cultists Kill Two Corps Members, Injure One In Bayelsa


Suspected cultists have killed two corps members and critically injured another during an attack on their residence in Bayelsa State.
The Tide reports that the incident occurred last Wednesday night along School Road, Swali in Yenagoa Local Government Area of the state.
Bayelsa State Commissioner of Police, Mr Olusholla David, who visited the state NYSC Secretariat and met with the State  NYSC Coordinator, Mrs Lotto Bolade, yesterday in Yenagoa, described the killing as “shocking”.
The CP assured the NYSC of a rejigged security strategy to ensure the safety of serving corp members in the state.
“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 reaction, Bayelsa NYSC Coordinator, Mrs Lotto Bolade, decried the incessant attacks on corps members in the state, saying it was 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.
Bolade, however confirmed that the third injured corps member survived the attack.
