Two members of the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) have been shot dead in Yenagoa the Bayelsa State capital by some suspected cultist.
Station Magazine gathered that the corp members were reported shot dead in their lodge along the School road at the Swali area of the state capital on Wednesday.
One of the dead corps member identified as Popoola Olamide, was a graduate of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) and an indigene of Oyo State.
The other corp member, who has not been identified yet was said to have died shortly before getting to the hospital for medical attention.
According to reports, another corp member is still fighting for his life as a result of gunshot wounds.
Narrating the incident to Channels Television, a neighbour of the deceased who pleaded anonymity said that the suspected cultists, numbering six, arrived at their residence at about 10:30 pm.
“We heard gunshot from the direction of the Corps members’ room. One of the attacked corps members was shouting ‘Jesus’ repeatedly and asking what was their crime. Another shot sounded and he was silenced,” he said.
According to channels TV, the victims were attached to a private school close to their residence and were marking examination scripts when the hoodlums attacked them.
