Windstorm Wreaks Havoc At Taraba NYSC Camp, 33 Left Hospitalised

A heavy windstorm has wreaked havoc at the orientation camp of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Taraba State.

A total of 33 Batch A 2019 corps members were hospitalised following the incident which destroyed buildings and other valuables on Saturday at the camp in Sibre, on the outskirt of Jalingo, the state capital.

The heavy windstorm which started in the evening caught up with the corps members who were out celebrating a cultural festival in preparation for their passing out parade billed for Tuesday, having completed their three weeks orientation course.

The disaster also left the screen of the corps ambulance shattered, blew off several roofing sheets of both male and female dormitory, and left them at the mercy of rain.
