Some yet-to-be-identified armed men have killed fresh graduates of the Osun State University who were travelling to their NYSC Camp.

The barbaric incident which happened along Lokoja-Abuja Road claimed the life of two graduates of the Osun State-based institution.

According to the Public Relations officer of the University who confirmed the Incident, Ademola Adesoji, said:

“Four of our ex-students were involved. Three of them are male and one female. Two died in the incident. But we spoke with the two that survived and monitored their movement up to the hospital.

Our Students Affairs Unit also notified the NYSC leadership and the management of the scheme responded immediately. The two that died were heading to Kaduna NYSC Orientation Camp. The four of them travelled in a vehicle they hired from Osogbo,”

A 21-days orientation course is part of the mandatory One year service Scheme put together years ago by the federal government of Nigeria for graduates of higher institutions across the country.

This news is coming just a few weeks after four prospective corp members also lost their lives while going to Katsina for this same orientation exercise from Akwa Ibom.
