The police spokesperson, Mr Ebere Amaraizu, who delivered a lecture on: The Road Map to Becoming a Champion, said that everybody could not become champions but that it was everybody’s wish to be one.

“If you want to be a champion, you must be in the grace of champion and the answer to becoming champions is to shun cultism. Cultism is like an envelope that contains lots of things that can stop you from reaching your destination in life. Crimes like stealing, drug addiction, rape, car snatching and others are associated with cultism and any offence among this can lead you to untimely death,” he said.

In another lecture by Dr Ifeanyi Ojobor of the Institute of Management and Technology, Enugu, he said that the law allowed freedom of association but that such freedom when abused became disobedience to the law and punishable.

“You have the right for association but the right has a clause to it and the clause frowns at the present cult activities associated with killings, rape, confrontations, burglary and others,” he said.
