The President, Lagos Arcdiocesan Catholic Men Organization (LACMON) Barr. Vincent Otiono has added his voice in condemning the brutal murder of Oluwabamise, a 22 years old Lagos fashion designer who boarded a Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) but only to be kidnapped and murdered in cold blood by heartless individuals.
Speaking with Airport correspondents in Lagos on his return from CMON bi annual meeting in Abuja where he also attended the Opening Ceremony of 2022 Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria CBCN, Barr Vincent Otiono said, that “brutal and heartless crimes have become too common as Sanctity and the Sacredness of human lives have been rendered worthless due to the craze for ungodly wealth”
He further added that “Ritual killings is presently on the increase because of the sudden belief that human parts can become wealth”. He therefore called on Parents to effectively play their role of impacting Moral Values in their Children and Wards.
This is a clarion call to all right thinking individuals, Government, Parents, Church Leaders and civil societies to reverse this trend by speaking up against this evil and devilish trend destroying bright stars who he said are hacked down in their prime due to the craze for ungodly wealth.
The legal luminary urged members of Catholic Men Organization of Nigeria (CMON) to do their part in the continuous moulding of God fearing children that will be role models in our Society .
He enjoyed parents to do more in the area of moral upbringing because as it is written in the Bible “bring up a child in the way of the Lord and he or she will never depart from it. He also called on Government to stamp out the criminal gangs responsible for the ungodly acts.
