Hoodlums attack corps member in Cross River

Some unidentified hoodlums in the early hours of Saturday attacked a corps member, Miss Gbenimachor Chinezendu-Ezinne, in her residence at Obubra local government area of Cross River.

Chinezendu-Ezinne, a 2016 Batch B `Stream 1’ corps member, is currently doing her primary assignment at the General Hospital in Obubra.

The hoodlums attacked the corps member in her residence and gave her a cut in the right thumb.

Reacting to the attack, the state Coordinator of NYSC, Mrs. Ambekemo Eniola, told the News Agency Nigeria (NAN) that Chinezendu-Ezinne had reported the matter to the NYSC authority.

“We are aware of the matter. The corps member reported to us that she was attacked in her residence in Obubra,” the NYSC coordinator told NAN

“We saw the injury on her hand; we thank God that it was not too serious. We have given her a permit to go and visit her parent and get some relief.

“We call on all communities in the state to always stand with corps members and protect them against any form of attack.

“I condemn whichever group of persons that carried out this attack on our corps member.

“Cross River is a peaceful state; we have enjoyed a warm relationship with residents of the state and government over the years.”
