The National Youth Service Corps has announced that the scheme will redeploy any corps member, who feels unsafe in states harboured by Fulani herdsmen.
The Director-General of the NYSC, Brig. Gen. Suleiman Kazaure, said this on Tuesday during the inspection of the NYSC Orientation Camp in Ede, Osun.
The DG, who was represented by the Director, General Service, Alhaji Abdulrasak Salaw, said this in an interview with journalists after the inspection.
He said, “all of us must work together to ensure that the crisis is resolved. We cannot risk the lives of corps members in Benue and that is why the NYSC orientation camp was relocated from Benue to Kogi State.
“Ordinarily, Kogi and Taraba States corps members were supposed to camp in Benue State but because of this crisis, they were moved to Kogi State.
“During the course of the orientation programme, any corps member that writes that he or she is not secured in that place, we will look into it and redeploy such corps members to another state.
“We may not redeploy them to the state they want but we will relocate them. We cannot keep them in a place where they feel their security is threatened.”
