Ogun State Amotekun corps has asked the state government to put the juvenile homes across the state in good shape, before sending suspected cultists from public secondary schools there.
Education, science and technology commissioner, Professor Abayomi Arigbabu recently unveiled the plan of the ministry to transfer arrested student cultists to the homes for the correction of their character.
But the commander of Amotekun corps, Retired Police Commissioner David Akinremi in an interview with a Rockcity FM correspondent, Yemi Eniola, said the juvenile centres are not in good condition to hold the arrested students.
He warns that any suspected student cultist held in the centres as they are now will graduate into a hardened criminal that will later terrorize the society.
The Amotekun commander suggests that bad elements in the juvenile homes should be flushed out by the state government before sending arrested student cultists to the homes.
Akinremi said that his agency will, as from next academic session, take more active interest in the deteriorating security situation in the state’s public secondary schools.
According to Akinremi, Amotekun operatives will be deployed to schools noted for student’s restiveness to flush out bad elements from the affected schools.
Ahead of the deployment, the Amotekun commander said his men will embark on sensitization of students on the dangers of cultism.
