The National Youths Service Corps, NYSC, members who were indigenes of Osun State killed in Buachi State were yesterday interred in their hometown; Gbongan, headquarters of Ayedaade Local Government Area of Osun State amidst deep sorrow and gnashing of teeth.

The slain corps members; Gbenjo Ebenezer Ayotunde with identification number BA/10B/0463 and Adeniyi Kehinde Jehleel with number BA/10B/0197 were Batch “A” corps members undergoing the one year mandatory National Service in Bauchi State where they met their untimely death.
Both Gbenjo and Adeniyi who were graduates of Economics Education and Banking and Finance respectively were among the nine corps members killed in a post-election violence that erupted in Bauchi State shortly after the April 16 presidential election.
The Osun State government in compliance with the directives of the Federal Government and the NYSC organised a befitting state burial for the two slain corps members in both Osogbo, the state capital and Gbongan; their home town.
