Snake disrupts NYSC passing-out parade in Zamfara

A snake, on Tuesday, disrupted the passing-out parade of the National Youth service Corps (NYSC) Batch “A” at the orientation camp at Tsafe, in Zamfara.

The snake, according to eyewitnesses, might have come from one of the dilapidated structures at the camp and could have been in search of food.

The eyewitnesses said the snake tried to make its way to the platform where special guests on the occasion were seated during the ceremony.

Some of the corps members, as well as some of the special guests, took to their heels to avoid the reptile.

However, some of the corps members ran after the snake to kill it, using sticks and their boots. Earlier in her address to mark the end of the camp, the scheme’s Coordinator in the state,Mrs Ruth Bakka, urged the corps members to be of good behaviour.

She also urged them to be security-conscious during their 11-month primary assignment in the state.

The state coordinator commended the attitude displayed by the corps members while in camp,and advised them to remain disciplined wherever they found themselves in the future.

“The government is also committed to
completing the orientation camp and providing all necessary facilities for smooth operations,”the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Tijjani Kaura, said.
