Kaduna Killings: NYSC Suspends Batch 'C' Orientation Indefinitely

Following the renewed social unrest in some part of
Kaduna State and subsequent imposition of curfew by the
state government, the National Youth Service Corps
(NYSC), has suspended the commencement of the
orientation course for the 2018 Batch 'C' corps members
deployed to the state.

The orientation course, which was earlier scheduled to
commence, on Tuesday, October 23, has now been
postponed until further notice.
The state government had imposed a 24 hour curfew on
the state to halt the bloody attacks escalating from killings
in Kasuwan Magani, Kajuru Local Government Area of the
state few days ago.

While speaking to Daily Sun, the Coordinator of the NYSC
in the State, Hajiya Siddiq Walida, who confirmed that the
state signed the curfew, said the development became
necessary to guide against any eventuality.

The statement read in part, "The Management of National
Youth Service Corps wishes to inform all 2018 Batch C
prospective Corps Members deployed to Kaduna State that the
commencement of the Orientation Course earlier scheduled for
Tuesday, 23rd October, 2018 has been suspended till further
notice due to the current security situation and consequent
curfew imposed by the state government.

"All affected prospective corps members are advised to remain
at home until further notice from the NYSC Management.

"However, all other prospective Corps Members deployed to
other States and FCT are to report at the various orientation
camps on Tuesday, 23rd October, 2018 as scheduled. All
inconveniences are regretted."
