Why NYSC members should not be deployed to state facing insecurity after the abduction of corp members

It has now been reported how armed bandits have kidnapped members of NYSC who were travelling to their orientation camp in Tsafe LGA of Zamfara on Saturday.

The police claim that 2 corps members were forcefully whisked away by the bandits, though some witnesses claim that 6 others were missing from the incident. This has left other corp members in panic after the abduction of their colleagues.

Although, most Nigerians have started calling for the cancellation of the NYSC scheme.

Investigation has commenced to establish the actual number of corp members involved in the abduction, while a search and rescue operation is ongoing to ensure the abducted members are rescued safely.

Well, in my opinion, instead of completely scrapping NYSC scheme, the government can stop deploying Corp members to state that are facing heavy security crisis.

This is because, corp members may be exposed to danger in states heavily terrorised by bandits. Sending corp members to the East or West, where there is a lower rate of abduction, would reduce risk of corp members getting attacked in their camps.

What are your thoughts?
