Afikpo Community Elders enact laws To Checkmate youth restiveness, cultism

By Dominion Okechukwu

A Group, Ehugbo General Assembly have enacted traditional laws to checkmate the increasing rate of youth restiveness and crim­inality in Afikpo Community, Ebonyi State.

In a meeting held at the traditional square on Wednesday, the traditional elders  con­demed the involvement of cult activities and senseless killings in the communities stress­ing that such dastardly acts shall be tackled severely by seriously sanctioning of de­faulters.

They observed with shock, the frequent and indiscriminate use of ques­tionable handbags which the youths sling over their shoul­ders, noting with dismay that such bags, most times, are used to conceal dangerous weapons and hard drugs.

After critical review of the use of these questionable handbags, the elders in a com­muniqué resolved to ban such usage just as culprits shall be sanctioned accordingly.

The Ehugbo Assembly also took note of the wanton involvement of youths who connive with some unscru­pulous persons and resort to arbitrary sales of land which most times do not belong to any of the parties, warning that such practice is against the customs of the land, reminding prospective buyers of land to be wary of the dupes and ensure that they deal with the rightful owners and the elders council who are custodians in charge of land matters.

Another resolve taken by the elders was the total con­demnation of cult activities and senseless killings stress­ing that such dastardly acts shall be tackled severely by seriously sanctioning of de­faulters.

Reacting to the issue, the Okabue of the Elders Council in Afikpo, Chief Christopher Abagha Egwu said the di­rectives, as issued, would be implemented to the letter as adequate measures had been streamlined to ensure full com­pliance.

He said that the traditional town announcers have already circulated the decision of the assembly to all nooks and crannies of the various com­munities to that effect.
