The Advocates for Children and Vulnerable Persons Network (ACVPN) has completely condemned the viral video in circulation on some minors allegedly apprehended in a Bush in a yet to be identified location/ State.
In a press release made available to fasnewsng.com by the advocates Coordinator, Comrade Omajalile Ebenezer, ACVPN is of the opinion that the person who recoded the video is biased and unprofessional in the presentation by calling the minors Criminals when they were not caught with guns or any weapons.
“These children were obviously looking terrified with the way and manner the Amotekun Officers flaunt their Guns. After all, the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), Child Rights Act (CRA) and even the Lagos State Child Rights Law (CRL) clearly stated that whatever we do must be in the best interest of the child.
“Let’s ask ourselves what could have led the children in uniform think of calling themselves names such as Naira Marley, the answer is simple, the primary care giver which are the parents/guardian are the ones who failed to addressed these issues and so, they have also encouraged such behavior by failing to address such issues.
“Secondly the name Naira Marley adaption by the alleged leader of the children calls for serious concern. The Nigeria Government has also failed woefully in its responsibility to curb the irresponsibility of the Musician who recently released a single album Tagged “didolobo” which described Women/Girls vagina as a toy to play with.
“But in the actual sense, is it not the regulations Agency who exhibited a high level of ineptitudes and lackadaisical attitude to ban such a music and the musician in question to serve as deterrent to others? it’s not Naira Marley alone that exhibits such high irresponsibility, Olamide who calls himself badoo and some others too are guilty of such irresponsibility,” ACVPN lamented.
Comrade Ebenezer stated further that it is unfortunately a fact that there is Juvenile Cultism in primary schools and Secondary Schools and investigation has shown that young teachers, who are posted to schools to undergo Teaching practice are actually the Perpetrators of the initiation of innocent children into cultism.
“Lastly, we categorically state that Government, parents, School administration should set up a check balance process to adequately address such inadequacies as children are vulnerable and fragile and could easily be manipulated.
LONG LIVE NIGERIA
