Last night was a terrible night for two female corp members as they were severly burnt beyond recognition by unknown persons who attacked them in their room. The are both serving in Community Secondary school Iddo in Asari-Toru LGA of Rivers State .
Sources(Another corp member) around said the two corps members who are both females were locked in after the attackers had poured fuel in their room and then set the room on fire.
One of the corper is named Okey Winifred a batch C corps member while the other whose name could not be ascertained as at time of this report is a new batch B corps member that just left camp and reported at the PPA few days ago.
Both of them are currently in critical condition at the Intensive care unit (ICU) of Uniport Teaching Hospital.
The attackers are still unknown, however the story going round among other corpers in the community is they are probably some of the students in their PPA.
Rivers state is becoming a more dangerous place for youth corpers as they are easily victims of violent attacks by locals and kidnapping gangs. We hope the concern authority will do something urgently and curb the various violence against the corps members. God help us
