Commissioner expresses concern over cultism in primary, secondary schools


Benin, Jan. 4, 2016 (NAN) -rn over cases of cultism in primary and secondary schools in the state.

Ezike made this known on Monday at the disbursement of scholarship to six pupils of the Police Children’s School I and II in Benin.

He said “cultism had gone beyond tertiary institutions where it was known to be prevalent and had now penetrated the walls of institutions of lower education.’’

He urged parents and guardians to pay adequate attention to the whereabouts of their children and wards, especially the kind of company they keep.

The commissioner said parents should not be too busy to look after their children.

He also appealed to teachers not to relent in their effort at impacting positive ideals in the children.

He said “I want to ask all Divisional Police Officers whose jurisdiction it is to cover our police primary and secondary schools or police institutions to do their utmost best to offer necessary security and safety that the children need.

The scholarship was to provide succour to the children of serving, retired and deceased police officers. (NAN)
