Boko Haram: NYSC Reopens Borno Camp After 13 Years

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) announced on Monday (today) that its orientation camp in Borno State is now reopened.

Gists9ja understands that the NYSC camp in the state had been closed for over thirteen years following incessant Boko Haram attacks in the state.

Corps members deployed to serve in the State have been camping in Katsina State throughout the period that the camp was shut.

However, the Commissioner of Police, Borno State command, ML Yusuf, visited the orientation camp ahead of corps members’ deployment on August 18, 2023.

The CP said he visited the new orientation camp located at Arabic Teachers College, Maiduguri, to assess the security situation.

“This would enable us to know the nature of deployment to be made toward ensuring a peaceful conduct of the orientation which is commencing on the 18th August 2023,” Daily Trust quoted the police commissioner saying.

The CP stressed that the orientation for the NYSC in Maiduguri is a hallmark for peace restoration in the state after thirteen years of non-existence.

The CP, who was with the Secretary to the State Government, Hon Tijjani Bukar, and the state coordinator of the NYSC, Mr Mohammed Jiya Adamu, had discussions on ways to ensure hitch-free camping.

The CP also assured them of adequate and strategic deployment of police personnel both at entry, exit and other strategic places within the camp.
