The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) yesterday announced the redeployment of corps members from seven northern states: Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Jigawa, Kano and Yobe, as terror attacks continue ripping through northern Nigeria.

A statement in Abuja by the Director of Public Relations of the NYSC, Mrs. Bose Aderibigbe said the decision followed the high insecurity in some parts of the North.

The corps members are part of the 2014 Batch ‘B’ Orientation Course scheduled to commence on August 5.

The NYSC said due to logistic reasons, the orientation course would be conducted in two streams for different states.

The Stream One exercise will be conducted from August 5 to 26 in Lagos, Ondo, Ekiti, Kwara, Oyo, Niger, Abia, Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Benue, Bayelsa, Cross River, Delta, Ebonyi, Edo, Enugu, FCT, Imo, Kebbi, Kaduna, Kogi, Katsina, Nasarawa, Ogun, Plateau, Rivers, Sokoto, Taraba and Zamfara states.

Corps members posted to states listed in the Stream One category would undergo the orientation course in their respective states of deployment.

The statement explained that the Stream Two exercise, meant for the affected northern states, had been scheduled for September 1, 2014 to September 22.

Corps members posted to Adamawa State will have their orientation programme in Niger; Bauchi corps members are expected to resume in Plateau State orientation camp while those posted to Borno State are to proceed to the Nasarawa State camp.

Other affected states are Gombe, where corps members are expected to serve in Benue and Jigawa State corps members are expected to have their orientation programme in Kaduna. Corps members posted to Yobe State are expected to resume at the Federal Capital Territory orientation camp.

The NYSC said corps members posted to Kano State would be notified of the state of their orientation in due course while those posted to Osun State will serve in Osun for the second stream of the exercise.
