Over 100 students that attended the Anchor International Youths and Teens Work Academy (AIYTA) in Lagos have declared war against child sexual abuse and ritual killings across Nigeria.

This was the consensus after the residential academy that combined cohort2 and cohort 3.

President of AIYTA, Dr Bolarinwa Omotosho, said the academy offered practical skills for the attendees drawn from various organisations, churches and communities.

He told journalists that the academy frowned at the prevalent worsening cases of money rituals and cybercrimes in Nigeria

He lamented mothers of cyber fraudsters, colloquially known as “Yahoo boys” were forming associations.

He appealed to parents as well as all the students of AIYTA academy to support the war against cybercrime and prevalent Ritual, Money, Making Madness (RMMM) syndrome.

He blamed society, parents, government and religious organisations for celebrating inexplicable wealth in our society.

According to the youth empowerment expert: “It is unfortunate that Nigeria has lost many prime and promising future leaders to rape, sexual abuse, unhealthy and immoral societal failure called money ritual or yahoo+++.”

He also frowned at how a 22-year-old fashion designer, Bamise Ayanwole was raped and killed by suspected ritualists.

Some of the courses taught at the academy include The empowerment of Nigeria teens and youths; Entrepreneurship intervention as a solution to unemployment in Nigeria; Youth and teens workers as marital counselors; Child and youth abuse: Psychological, Sociological Effects and Solutions; Substance abuse and crime prevention among teens and youths: Essence, effects, and solutions.

Among the adjunct facilitators drawn from traditional institutions of higher learning, ministries and workplaces were: Dr. ‘Rant Samuel; Dr. Grace Ijarogbe, a medical consultant and mental health specialist; Dr. Priscillia Omotosho; Dr. Deji Oyenuga, an associate Professor.

“The AIYTA curriculum focuses on the practical aspects of child and youth development practices, ministry, and the status of professionalism in the wider society.
