“Its overbearing impact is more significant due to high levels of poverty, unemployment, corruption in Nigeria.”

 

However, the youths constitute a vital segment of the society in which they live. A disciplined, focused and law-abiding youth can create bright future for the nation. While a lawless, indulgent and violent youth is a great threat to the peace and security of the society”.

 

The group stated that it has earmarked plans to carry out sensitisation against youth involvement in crime as well as partner with the security agencies to ensure that youth involvement in criminal activities is reduced to it’s barest minimum.
