Stakeholders worry over increased ritual killers in Ogun
Stakeholders in Ogun state have raised concerns over increased instances of ritual killings being reported in the state.
It will be recalled that about three sets of alleged ritual killers, including a couple, have since been arrested by the state police command in less than one month.
At a day sensitisation/reorientation workshop on security and peace building for Ogun state students, the stakeholders expressed worry over the development, warning that the government must urgently tame the monster.
The event was organised by the Special Assistant to Governor Dapo Abiodun on Students' Affairs, Comrade Azeez Amoo Adeyemi.
It was attended by pupils of secondary schools as well as students drawn from various tertiary institutions in the state.
In his keynote address, the state Chairman of the Police Community Relations Committee (PCRC), Dr. Samson Popoola, warned the students against get-rich-quick syndrome.
"The rising waves of ritual killings and the get rich quick syndrome that has held our youths and young adults hostage is the erroneous believe that rich and wealth are the same.
"Unfortunately it is not so that is why we have so many rich people around us but very few wealthy people."
Also in his lecture, the Provost, Tai Solarin College of Education, Omu-Ijebu, Ogun State, Dr. Lukman Kiadese, suggested that such workshop must be sustained to foster continuous conversation about the subject matter.
"All stakeholders must ensure that this conversation is taken to different functional spaces like schools, students' groups, community arenas, village squares, voluntary societies, e.t.c.
Speaking earlier at the event, Adeyemi assured that the state government would continue to reorientate students and engage them in more productive activities that will take their minds off criminality.
He disclosed that efforts is being put in place to take the campaign against money rituals to all tertiary institutions in the state.
