South-East Insurgency: Soldiers to secure NYSC camps, lodges

The Nigerian Army has pledged to protect all orientation camps and corps lodges of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in the South-East amidst current insecurity in the zone.

Maj. Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja, the General Officer Commanding (GOC) the 82 Division of the Nigeria Army in Enugu, gave the assurance on Monday when the Director of the South East Area Office of NYSC, Ngozi Nwatarali, visited him.

Mr. Lagbaja requested that NYSC state coordinators in the South-East update and compile addresses of all corps lodges in the region and liaise with the various brigade commanders for effective security strategy.

The GOC observed that the security challenge in the South-East was still at the lowest spectrum of insurgency.

He further noted that criminal elements were attacking national assets at the moment and that the condition might degenerate to kidnapping if not nipped in the bud.

However, the military commander assured the NYSC management that they were working assiduously to ensure the security of corps members at all times.

He equally promised to post more armed military personnel to protect the camps and ensure synergy between NYSC and the army in the region.

On her part, Mrs. Nwatarali called on the GOC to join hands with other security agencies to achieve the goal of adequate security of corps members and NYSC orientation camps.

The regional director also prayed for an urgent and timely response by security personnel in case of any threat to the lives of corps members.
