The bandits who stormed the Family House of the Redeemed Christian Corpers Fellowship (RCCF) held the corps members hostage for hours after raiding them of hundreds of thousands and other valuables.
The gunmen gained entrance into the Corps Member lodge from a toilet in the female wing of the building charted away three laptops, about 24 mobile phones and thousands of naira.
“we are about 20 corps members in the lodge last when it happen, and all our phones were taken away, some of us had two, three phones, also our monthly feeding allowance which we contributed was also taken away by the evil men.”
A corps member who does not want his name in print said “we were sleeping when some men came in holding all sort of dangerous weapon but we never resist them, we obey their orders because we were socked in fears, they asked us of our state of origin and religion threatening to behead us if we misbehave. ”
RCCF president Banji Omogbehin said the motive of the attack was unknown because the bandit where asking us of our state of origin, threaten to rape our ladies and behead us.
Officials of the NYSC who visited the corps members said the issue will be seriously dealt with, as the scheme will not tolerate such act on its serving corps members.
However Police spokesperson Amos Olaoye said the case is not a robbery case but burglary and stealing, “I can confirm the attack but its not robbery, we have not made any arrest yet but the police are investigating.”
