The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has temporarily relocated its permanent orientation camp from Mangu LGA in Plateau state amid rising insecurity in the area.


In a statement, Eddy Megwa, NYSC’s spokesperson, said the state orientation camp is now situated at Buken Academy Doi-Du in Jos south LGA.

Megwa called on prospective corps members deployed to the state to take note of the new location.

“This is to inform members of the public, especially our esteemed prospective corps members that the venue of the 2023 Batch ‘B’ Stream One Orientation Camp for Plateau State has been changed from the Permanent Orientation Camp in Mangu to Waye Foundation, by Buken Academy Doi-Du (Temporary NYSC Orientation Camp) in Jos South local government area of Plateau state,” the statement reads.


“All prospective corps Members are by this information expected to report at the new Orientation Camp (Waye Foundation by Buken Academy) on the dates specified in their call-up letters. Kindly take note of this new development.”

There have been concerns over the level of security threats in Mangu LGA and other parts of the state.

TheCable earlier reported how nine people were killed when gunmen attacked a community in Mangu LGA on Saturday.


Following the incident, Caleb Mutfwang, the state governor, imposed a 24-hour curfew in the LGA.

On Tuesday, the house of representatives asked Nuhu Ribadu, national security adviser (NSA), to declare a national emergency on killings in Plateau state.
