In a plenary session on Monday, the Lagos State House of Assembly has passed the ‘unlawful act and anti-corruption’ bill into law
Mudashiru Obasa, Speaker of the house, while stating the contents of the bill said:
“Parents of cultists found guilty of cultism in the state might be liable for punishment.
“The bill, if signed into law, will provide for the prohibition of unlawful societies and cultism in Lagos and for connected purposes.
Furthermore, Setonji, representing Badagry Constituency II has called on parents to take proper care of their children.
He said this can be done by parents guiding their kids to comply with societal norms and values.
“The issue of cultism has been a major challenge to us in the state. There is nothing wrong in associations coming together, but when it has to do with devilish ideas, causing commotion, that is what we are against.
“As a result, parents should learn to take care of their children to ensure they conform to societal norms and values”, he stated.
