Insecurity : NYSC corps members spotted training aggressively in Benue State (Video)
A video making the rounds on social media captures the moment some National Youth Service Corps members engaged in rigorous training to develop necessary skills in the fight against banditry and insecurity in the state and maybe, the entire country.
Members of the NYSC have always been regarded as an arm of the ‘paramilitary’ so it comes as no surprise that they undergo some near-military fitness training.
In the video, the group of corps members clad in their NYSC attire could be seen practising their moves aggressively while on camp.
See the clip below;
The video has elicited hilarious reactions from social media users;

In 2021, Taraba state Governor, Darius Ishaku, opined that as part of the country’s efforts to combat insecurity, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) should be extended to two years, and members be allowed to undergo military.
In his words;
“The NYSC I will say should be two years. One year for compulsory military training and the other year for the social works that they are doing now so that anybody who graduates as an NYSC person can know how to handle the gun and defend himself,” he said.
