Youth corps members serving in Katsina State have raised alarm after indigenes attacked two corps members; a male and female cutting off the thumb of one of them because they are both unmarried and living together.

I want to use this medium to inform the federal government, state government here in Katsina state and NYSC Director General to come to our rescue here in Katsina state as a result of the incessant attack against the corpers serving in Katsina state. Our lives are no longer safe and we are living in a state of quagmire. Last night some corpers were attacked both boys and girls and the worse part of it is that a girl’s hand was cut off for no reason. Senate and house of rep, please do something about it and do not sit down and watch ur sons and daughters that u spent huge amount of money to train in University to die like chicken. God we need ur help, please come and safe our lives. Please our parents out there, pray to God always to safe our lives.
