A human rights group, the Committee for the Defence for Human Rights (CDHR), yesterday decried the spate of cultism, kidnapping, armed robbery and other social vices in the country, especially in Delta State and vowed to do something within its power to stop this menace.
The body disclosed this through its Chairman in the state, Kehinde Taiga, when he spoke with newsmen in Warri. Taiga said cultism, armed robbery, kidnapping were among the vices giving residents sleepless nights in the state and many other concerned Nigerians.
He warned those involved in such menace to desist or face the wrath of the law. He said: “I observe that social vices are the order of the day in Delta State and we in the human rights society can’t fold our hands and allow things to go wrong.”
The CDHR chairman said kidnapping had continued to strive because most of the community heads tend to defend their children who were into nefarious activities, warning that henceforth, any community head that harbours criminals and backs up such people will be held responsible.
He also called on bad eggs in the Nigeria Police, who extort money from motorists and others, to have a change of heart; otherwise the long arm of the law will eventually catch up with them.
