•Charges youths to shun cultism, other vices
The need for Nigerian children and youths to shun cultism and other vices in order to become champion of their dream has been stressed and extended to churches in Anambra by the team of the Police Campaign Against Cultism and Other Vices(POCACOV).
In a POCACOV outreach under the Visit All Churches (VAC) programme held last Sunday by the State coordinator of POCACOV, SP Chukwudi Okorogu at International Bible Believers Church at Mbanagu, Otolo Nnewi Anambra state, he emphasized the need for Nigerian children and youths to shun cultism by saying ‘No’ to anything that will shut them off from becoming meaningful to themselves and to the society.
He used the opportunity of the occassion of the grand finale of the 2020 church week to lecture them on the dangers and consequencies of cultism and other vices and the need to shun them, pointing out that POCACOV is a community driven programme to combat cultism and other vices through community oriented approaches to involve different stakeholders.
He urged all to be law abiding and avoiding anything that will bring them in conflict with the laws of the land.
No fewer than three hundred youths attended the POCACOV outreach programme.
Meanwhile, the National Coordinator, POCACOV, CSP Ebere Amaraizu has stated that POCACOV will continue with its community peace builders scheme of POCACOV Volunteer Club for a safer school and community partnership.
“Under our community driven programme, we shall be visiting all churches/mosques, visit market place and parks, visit all communities and town amongst other for the purpose of deepening the campaign message thereby achieving a safe, peaceful and secured environment,” Amaraizu said.
