The Inspector General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Adamu, has led the launch of the Police Campaign Against Cultism and Other Vices (POCACOV) in the state of Edo, according to a statement from the National Coordinator of POCACOV, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu.

The statement, which was made available to journalists in Enugu on Tuesday, quoted Amaraizu as saying that the campaign needed to relocate to and around Edo state and work with different stakeholders, to mitigate the high incidence of cultism and other vices in the state.

”It has to be in line with the principles of community-oriented policing and galvanize public support. The program must seek to cut the supply line and achieve community peace consolidation, ”he said.

He said the IGP had expressed its displeasure at the high incidence of youth participation in cultism and other vices, which generally exposed them to injury and premature death.

”We want everyone to join the Nigerian police in the campaign against cultism and other vices through POCACOV. Young people must say ‘no’ to worship and other vices, for a safe and secure society ”, said the coordinator.

Amaraizu said that POCACOV is the initiative of the Nigerian Police Force under IGP Mohammed Abubakar Adamu, which aimed to save Nigerian children and youth from the clutches of cultism and other vices, using a combination of advocacy, awareness, creation, mentoring and reorientation. .

He said the program is community-driven, involving different stakeholders, in accordance with the principles of community policing.

The coordinator said that the Delta State Guidance Agency had stepped up the continuation of the group’s door-to-door campaign to the Abraka area and will begin the Agbor Area on Wednesday, November 18.
