A female corps member deployed to Bayelsa State for her one-year mandatory service, is now under intensive care as Doctors are battling to save her life following her ordeal in the hands of robbers.
It was gathered that after the armed robbers overpowered the neighbourhood vigilantes who are usually armed with only sticks and machetes, they invaded the ‘Corpers Lodge’ at Yenizue Gene, a suburb of Yenagoa, about 3a.m. yesterday and the corps member was reportedly assaulted and raped by a 15-man gang of robbers.
According to a resident of the community, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the hoodlums reportedly went to the NYSC Corpers Lodge where they forcibly took away a female corps member and she was repeatedly raped by the suspects who took her in turns.
News Telegraph reported that local sources said though the police were alerted, there was little they could do because the area had been thrown into darkness by the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company (PHEDC). A vigilante, who gave his name simply as Tonye, said the security men were afraid of running into an ambush.
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Asinim Butswat, who was contacted by newsmen however said he had not got a clear information about the incident.
Few months ago, suspected members of a cult also attacked a Corpers’ Lodge at Angalabiri community of Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, severing the hand of a Corps member.

Also stolen from the Corpers’ Lodge were a Laptop and two mobile phones. It was learnt that the invasion by the criminals, which happened at about 2.30am caused panic among Corps members serving in the Sagbama Local Government Area.
