Gunmen on Wednesday night attacked corps members living in the Family House of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Jalingo, the Taraba State capital, carting away laptops, phones and money.
One of the victims, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: “Some of us had more than one phones. Our monthly feeding allowance, which we contributed, was also taken away by the evil men.” Another said: “We were sleeping when some men came in holding all sorts of dangerous weapons. We never resisted them. We obeyed their orders because we were shocked by fear.

We were about 20 corps members in the lodge when it happened. All our phones were taken awayThey threaten to behead us’ “They asked us of our state of origin and religion, threatening to behead us if we misbehave.”
Confirming the attack, RCCF President, Banji Omogbehin, said: “The motive of the attack was unknown because the bandits asked us our state of origin, threatened to rape our ladies and behead us.” Officials of NYSC, who visited the corps members, said the issue would be seriously dealt with, as the scheme would not tolerate such act on its serving corps members.
However, Police spokesperson, Amos Olaoye, said it was a case of burglary and stealing. He said: “I can confirm the attack, but it is not robbery. We have not made any arrest yet but the police are investigating.
