There seems to be drastic actions taken by authorities as regards killings by herdsmen in Benue State.

There will not be orientation for National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members posted to Benue state this period.

Though no exact reason was given for the development, reports gathered indicate that it is unconnected to the massive killings of Benue residents by herdsmen.

NYSC says the 2017 Batch ‘B’ stream II orientation course scheduled to hold in Benue from January 16 to February 5, 2018 has been suspended till further notice.

A new date will be communicated to corps members deployed to the state.

“The NYSC management wishes to inform all prospective corps members deployed to Benue and Taraba states that the 2017 Batch ‘B’ Stream II orientation course scheduled to hold in Benue camp has been suspended.

“A new date will be communicated to you in due course. All inconveniences are highly regrettable,” the scheme said.

Earlier, the NYSC had issued a statement that the 2017 Batch ‘B’ Stream II orientation course would hold in only 15 camps nationwide.

The camps are in Abia, Bauchi, Benue, Delta, Enugu, Sokoto, Jigawa, Kaduna, Katsina, Plateau, Lagos, Osun, Oyo, Rivers and the FCT.
