Peace advocates train children on crime detection

International Associa­tion of World Peace Advocates, yesterday commenced training for children on crime detec­tion and prevention.
The World Peace Ad­vocates maintained that crime had refused to ameliorate because it had not been given the desired approach.
Anambra State Co-ordinator, Mr Henry Ebuluofor while speak­ing with newsmen at the training said: “the antidote for world peace is a conscious acknowl­edgement that violence is evil.”
He said for society to curb crime young people should lead the drive.
Ebuluofor further said that what was needed to subdue crime was “to form consciences and educate the young gen­eration to goodness by holding the integral and fraternal humanism.”
He commended the church for continuing to proclaim and promote universal morality.
The International Peace Advocates listed evils in modern society to include, anarchy and conflicts, injustice, vio­lence and killings, as well as dispossession and des­titution.
The group added that “government and citi­zens of Nigeria should have the mindset that fosters peace, love and harmony, and be proac­tive to contribute to the resolution of conflicts and common challenges in a just and peaceful manner.
“This is achievable only by resolving to put peace first and by pro­moting platforms for dialogues and commu­nity values amongst the children”.
The traditional ruler of Nanka in Orumba North Local Government Area of the state, Igwe God­win Ezeilo, called on the Nigerian elite to be more proactive and commit­ted to building lives and developing humanity.
Earlier in an address, the association’s World Peace President, Ambas­sador Per Stafsen said, “the International Asso­ciation of World Peace Advocates started its first grassroots mobilisation for peace development in Akwa-Ibom
