It was titled, “Appeal to DG on the relocation of Plateau corpers based on insecurity.”

A post attached to the petition reads, “Due to the latest insecurity occurrence in Plateau Jos most especially Jos north. We implore the Director-General to please help get Plateau corpers relocated most especially those in Jos North and its environs based on insecurity.

“This petition will help corp members have a peaceful service year without fear of threat to life.”

The development comes amid the tension in the state trailing the attacks and counter-attacks on defenceless people in the state.

On Saturday, August 14, some travellers were killed by gunmen in the Jos North Local Government Area of the state.

The sojourners were returning from Bauchi State where they attended an event to commemorate the Islamic New Year when they ran into gunmen who opened fire on them.
