‘Blood will flow…’: Cultists issue death threats to youth ‘corpers’ in Kogi (See Photos)

by Oge Okonkwo


The compulsory one year youth corp program which all school leavers under the age of 30 must undergo might just be a nightmare for some ‘corpers’ serving in some remote parts of Nigeria.

According to blogger, Linda Ikeji, a mail was sent to her by a batch A Corp member serving in Victory Model College, Efodo – Okpo, Olamaboro L.G.A of Kogi State.

The Corper complained about the death threats they have been receiving from secondary school students in the school which was their place of primary assignment.

According to the Corper, the unidentified students wrote death threats on the board in the school’s classrooms and right now they are scared for their lives and what the students may do to them and have gone into hiding.

Read the mail below:

It’s no good news to hear that NYSC Corp Members are treated with discontentment in Kogi State, especially in remote local government like Olamaboro.

There have been cases of some drunk youths ganging up to launch attack on corpers at their capital project sites, accusing them of integrating strange norms into their culture

Let me go straight to what I witnessed this morning. I woke up this morning like every other boring mornings in the village where I serve, dressed up, and went to the school. On arrival, all the students were gathered at one corner looking at me and the other Corp members, some with satisfaction, while others with pity.

On getting to the class rooms, we saw some write-ups directly warning me and other three (3) batch A Corp members. The pictures attached to this email will help tell the story better (even with the wrong English).

As am writing this report, four(4)  of us (batch A) and two (2) other batch C corpers are on hide out, praying God to intervene on the issue.

Batch A passing out parade (POP) comes up on the  13th of February, and the question is why would people whose lives we have impacted for close to one year decide to reward us with death threats?
