The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Bayelsa state, has revealed the predicament some National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, members that served as adhoc staff to the commission faced during the state’s governorship election.

Recall that the election which held on December 5 and 6, was Monday, declared inconclusive following the cancellation of the rescheduled election in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of the state where violence reportedly marred the process.

Report says some of the corps member are still being trapped in some troubled areas in the state and their whereabouts, unknown.

In his reaction to the development, the state governor, Seriake Dickson said, “As we speak, we are in the process of working with community leaders and other partners to identify and retrieve youth corps members who were put in danger for no fault of theirs.

“I want to assure the corps members and all stakeholders who will participate in the rescheduled election and other activities, that Bayelsa will continue to be home to them.

“I like to use this opportunity to also commend them, these young wonderful Nigerians who came here to serve their fatherland.

“The government of Bayelsa appreciates their sacrifice and will continue to partner with them to make our nation a better place,” Dickson added.

According to security operatives, frantic efforts are being made to salvage the corps members from the alleged troubled areas.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a security source disclosed that the whereabouts of some of the corps members are still unknown, adding that some of the corps members were injured while others were allegedly kidnapped during the attacks.

As alleged by the security source, the attacks have been blamed on party thugs and ex-militants carrying out the order of their sponsors.
