The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has relocated the orientation camp from the permanent site in Mangu, Plateau State to a temporary site in Waye Foundation, by Buken Academy Doi-Du due to insecurity

The Director, Press and Public Relations, Mr. Eddy Megwa, made this known in a press statement issued yesterday.

On Saturday, armed men invaded Farin Kasa, Kerana and Sabon Gari communities in the Mangu District of the Mangu Local Government and killed some people and burnt many houses.

The unfortunate incident prompted residents to protest the Saturday night killing of no fewer than 15 people in the community and called on security agents to take on the attackers whom they alleged, were Fulanis.

Owing to the development, the NYSC statement read:  “This is to inform members of the public, especially our esteemed prospective Corps members that the venue of the 2023 Batch ‘B’ Stream One Orientation Camp for Plateau State has been changed from the Permanent Orientation Camp in Mangu to Waye Foundation, by Buken Academy Doi-Du (Temporary NYSC Orientation Camp) in Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau State.

“All Prospective Corps Members are by this information expected to report at the new Orientation Camp (Waye Foundation by Buken Academy) on the dates specified in their call-up letters.”
