Enugu State Police Command Public Relations Department has disclosed that arrangements had been concluded to embark on sensitisation and campaign against cultism and other related vices in the society, with a view to ensuring adequate security.
Police Public Relations Officer in Enugu State, DSP Ebere Amaraizu disclosed this shortly after he concluded the school campaign against cultism and related vices at Government Secondary School, Enugu.
According to Amaraizu, cultism and other related vices have been noticed to have penetrated to some towns, villages and communities with artisans involved, pointing out that this portends great danger to security of lives and property, as well as socio-economic development.
He stressed that it had also been noticed that some drivers, conductors and traders now double as cultists and call for a change of attitude.
Amaraizu explained that cultism leads to other crimes like kidnapping, murder, robbery, drug abuse, amongst others.
Amaraizu further disclosed that with the police campaign against cultism and other crimes communities, towns, villages and other areas would be reached and sensitised through partnership of the media, members of the public and other relevant stakeholders for a safe and secured society.
“Already we have our campaign outline containing our message content well packaged to reach out our target audience who think that cultism and other related vices are ways of life, customs and tradition or acceptable in the society and it is also going to be a long term programme because we intend to embark on evaluation as well as review of the programme.
“The programme will mostly take shape of town hall meeting through the involvement of traditional rulers, president of town unions, youth leaders, faith based organisation/religious leaders, motor park leaders and other trade union leaders and associations,” he disclosed.
