A Youth Group, the NotTooYoungToLead Initiative has cautioned Nigerian Youths against the get-rich-quick syndrome. Executive Director, NotTooYoungToLead Initiative Ambassador Elvis Akpobi made this known in a statement issued to journalists in Asaba, the Delta State Capital.

Ambassador Akpobi noted with dismay disturbing reports of increased rate of the activities of Internet Fraudsters, Ritual Killings and Prostitution in Nigeria.

Ambassador Akpobi stressed that while unemployment is on the rise, resorting to unlawful ventures only adds to the destruction of the very fabrics of society, they by making communities unsafe for everyone including families of the perpetrators. He appealed to young not to put themselves under pressure but be patient and build their fortunes through legal means.

Ambassador Elvis Akpobi who is also the Special Assistant to the Executive Governor of Delta State on Youths Development used the opportunity to call on Nigerian parents and guardians not put their wards under undue pressure or place them in positions of disadvantage which may push them into engaging in such unlawful activities. He urged security agencies to double their efforts in ensuring that such criminal elements are not given room to operate within the State.

News reports from Jos the Plateau State Capital also corroborates the concerns of Ambassador Akpobi. Few days ago, it was reported that mutilated corpses of no fewer that two girls were recovered from different location. The deaths may not be unconnected with the activities of ritualists who lure unsuspecting girls with money and other material things, only to end up killing them and taking away vital parts and organs from their bodies.
