The National Youth Service Corps has said that the corps member, Saidu Mohammed, who was hit by a stray bullet during an assignment at Saturday’s by-election in Ekiti State is in stable condition.
The Service disclosed this in a statement after the Director, South-West Area Office, Mr Emmanuel Attah, paid Saidu a visit at the Federal Teaching Hospital, Ido-Ekiti where he is receiving treatment.
According to the NYSC, “Attah, who condemned the activities of the miscreants that truncated the election, commended Saidu and other Corps Members that volunteered to serve as ad-hoc electoral officers.
“He sympathized with Corps Member Saidu and others that sustained injuries during the election, while he urged Members of the public to provide adequate security and enabling environment for Corps Members posted to their respective communities.”
The Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, has said the suspects behind the violence in Saturday’s bye-election for Ekiti East Constituency 1 of the State House Assembly have been arrested.
