A statement from the corps obtained by CrossRiverWatch says: “This is to inform all prospective Corps members deployed to Cross River State in the 2017 Batch ‘A’ (Stream One) that the venue of their Orientation course is now CROSS RIVER STATE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION, AKAMKPA, CROSS RIVER STATE and not the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Obubra, as indicated in their Call-up Letters.
“All Prospective Corps members deployed to Cross River State are therefore, requested to report for camping at the new venue.”
The change of camp venue is suspected to be coming from a recent case of Lassa fever that killed a corps member in Obubra while 15 others who have been quarantined are said to be under close monitoring.
