Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu advocates punishment for parents of convicted cultists

The Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said that the parents of convicted cultists will also be heavily sanctioned.

He made this known  while addressing students on Thursday, May 27, during the Children’s Day celebration at the Police College, Ikeja.

The Governor, who was represented by his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, said a new law had been signed to fight cultism and it includes punishment for parents of wards convicted of cultism.

Speaking on behalf of the Lagos State Governor, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, said: “The new law against cultism prescribes punitive measures for parents of young people convicted of cultism. Parents should be vigilant and monitor their children.”

He added: “We owe them a duty to ensure that their dreams and aspirations are realised through continuous training, guidance and mentoring.”

Cultism is a plague that is fast spreading across the state with it infiltrating to some secondary schools especially the public ones. It is a menace that needs to be urgently curbed.

Lagosians will recall the atrocities committed by some cultists known as ‘Badoo’ who terrorized the entire Ikorodu axis.
