The Osun State Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Emmanuel Attah, has said that some corps members posted to Osogbo High School have been withdrawn because of threats to their lives from some pupils belonging to a cult group.
Mr. Attah said this on Wednesday while speaking with journalists at the 2018 NYSC/Corps Employers workshop held in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.
The Coordinator warned that the NYSC would not hesitate to withdraw corps members from any establishment or institution where they felt their safety was not guaranteed.
On if genreally the NYSC was satisfied with the security of corps members posted to schools in Osun State, Attah said, “I have no reason to complain about the security of corps members in the state. The police and the Department of State Services are always trying. But in 2017, we had to withdraw all the corps members posted to Osogbo High School due to cultist attacks.
“We will not post corps members to the school again unless the school gives us a written guarantee that the lives of the corps members are safe. The NYSC will not post anybody to anywhere their lives are not safe.”
