Hoodlums attack NYSC camp in Niger, cart away valuables

As the 2017 Batch A (Stream I) orientation course ends on Mondays June 12, the temporary camp of the National Youths Service Corps, in Paikoro local government area of Niger State has been attacked by hoodlums.

It was learnt that the hoodlums, who invaded the orientation camp, carted away Corps members’ belongings.

An eyewitness who spoke under anonymity said: “the hoodlums invaded the orientation camp as early as 6am when preparations for leaving the camp were in top gear.

“Items stolen include fans, mattresses, beddings, bedsheets amongst others.

“They pretended to be NYSC officials until some observant Corps members discovered that they were not and raised the alarm.

“However, many valuables had already been carted away before the alarm was raised.”

Meanwhile, the NYSC Coordinator in Niger state, Theresa Arokoyo, while speaking with newsmen in Paiko said: “if the NYSC had a permanent orientation camp in the state, such an incident would not have occurred.

“This incident was not the first time the camp would be vandalized, it is always the case each time the Camp closed for orientation.”

“This development makes the authority to spend extra money each time we resume for orientation,” She said.
