Free The Corpers by MrInfo1(m): 9:37am On Jun 14, 2011
Today 14th of June, 2011 makes it exactly 1 week since Olumide Yusuf and 4 other female corp members were kidnapped from Community Secondary School in Omademe village Ikwerre LGA of Port Harcourt, Rivers State. All efforts to track them had proved abortive and their kidnappers are allegedly asking for N100M from their families.

Rivers State government has concluded it won’t pay the ransom in order not to encourage future occurrence while the FG has remained mute over the kidnap saga. NYSC authorities in Rivers are yet to release the identities of the other victims while the families of these patriotic young lads wallow in confusion and unimaginable heartaches.

Our concern is not that they were kidnapped. Our rage is borne out of the ‘deafening silence’ that has been prevalent over the kidnap saga so far. It would interest you to know that all 5 of them are Batch ‘B’ corp members and are supposed to be discharged by the NYSC and rejoin their various families on Thursday 16th June, 2011; after having served their fatherland ‘under the rain and in the sun’ for a period of 12months.

Although, as young people of Nigeria, we do not have the ransom money being demanded by the kidnappers, we hereby make the following demands:

1. That all Batch ‘B’ corp members, across the federation, boycott all Passing Out Parade (POP) activities in solidarity and to ensure NYSC hold a press conference to unveil the identities of the other 4 female corp members.

2. That the FG brief the nation on the situation of things and plans being adopted to free them. The families have made it clear that they do not want the N5M paid to families of deceased corp members. They prefer to have them alive.
