Who is to blame?
1. One would say the Government. True that Government is the first to blame as it is evident that the government never tried to elevate poverty and create atmosphere for job creation and enable the youths to acquire skill and help them develop them. So, extreme poverty can make a young man go into crime
2. Parents. Just as Bible said that you should train up a child in the way he should go that when he grows, be will not depart from that path. Yes we know that poverty can make a man or woman go into this ritual killings. But if a man is properly trained at child hood, he won't deliberate on such devilish activities as he will be morally trained at early stage.
3. The child himself. We have seen how children from same parents may have total different characters. One is simple and the other gentle, A child can Decide his own path. We have seen how parents try to influence a child into wrongs and the child will still choose to do what is right. It is in two ways, a young man or woman can be influenced by their peers and wants to hang out with the big boys and he Gets tangled and unable to go back because of commitment.
There may be more cause but drop your own reason of what you think could be responsible to it
The fact that there are no jobs in the country doesn't justify the fact that one should engage in fraudulent activities.
Being fraudulent should never be an option for lack of jobs in the country.
Nigeria its self as a country is not encouraging at all , consider this right from the federal level every where is full of corruption.
Does it mean the country can not change for good if in case will change for good we have to see an example right from the federal level also.
Some youth nowadays don't won't to work and they won't to spend money if you won't to spend Money and you can't work surely you must do ritual or Yahoo the two options are clear.
Some people are lazy while some are not been opportune to get what they won't.
Nevertheless cost of living in Nigeria is one of the major problem that caused all this criminal activitties , imagine a married man who received ten thousand naira per month and he has a wife and five children.
At lilcent. You are very correct brother about what you said that the fact that there is no job in the country does not justify crime.
Due to high level of frustration and hunger people do a lot of criminal activity , I also accepte that is very bad but hunger can make someone do ritual and yahoo .
If someone is hungry your thinking ability will be made up of bad thought if care is not taken .
The person who do yahoo do it because of money , he who do ritual also do it for money sake what a world we are , the rate at which people find money this days is by either die or live.
Money is the root of all evil clutches that is the picture of what is happen in our country today.
Who are to be blame well the government have their part , the parents have their part , the children also have their part, the religion leader have their part .
The government thousands of graduate are out there seeking for job but they where unable to get any, if you don't have God father you can't get a good job in Nigeria.
The parents ,parents who doesn't care for their children parents who doesn't know how the children are living now tell me what kind of habit will the children pocess.
The children there are some children who usually don't get satisfaction with what there parents give to them such child will look out for all means to do evil things to fetch him or her money.
The religion leader some of these yahoo boys usually go to the religion leader for sacrifices and they will do it for them and which is a bad idea.
I strongly believe that the major cause of ritual killing is greed.
The quest to make money and live large.
Everyone has been destined to be great if only they take the right step that is expected of them in life.
Why ruin your all in the name of making money...
My pastor made me understand something about money ritual and I'll share it with you.
He said nd I quote " there's a distance between your past, your present and your future. When you do money ritual, it's not as if the devil gives you money, but he would only drag your future to your present. This simply implies that there's an empty future for you because you have dragged it to your present. So when you get to the future, it's either you die before you get there or you become very poor when you get to your future.
@nagian👏. Hmmmmnnn Thank you very much for this information bro...
Proverbs 21:5 makes me understand that good planning and hardwork leads to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts leads to poverty...
What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and lose his own soul....
There was a senate meeting pertaining to the level of ritual killing in the country because it is now becoming very pronounced like never before. I pray that God would vindicate us from this ritual killers IJN....
@lilcent:. Well said bro, there's no justification for doing what is wrong...
Thanks for that write-up. It's educational and interesting. We live in a society that is no longer safe for anyone and all the atrocities are increasing daily without any change.
Yahoo suddenly became a new trend when people refused to pay full attention to it and when people started supporting those committing the atrocities by saying they are helping us to get back our money from the oyinbos - please, is the oyinbos owning us any money?
Social media has also contributed to this crime because the news that was circulating some months back about the teenagers that beheaded their girlfriend just to use her head as part of the ingredient of what they saw on Facebook - what a wicked world!
Parents can also be held responsible for all these acts because many parents have forgotten that they had children in the institution. I don't seem to understand why a parent won't be sending money to their children though we all know the situation of the country and our prayer is that Nigeria will be better one day but parents should keep trying their best.
Also, some parents don't caution their children whenever they see a strange act manifesting in them. How do you want to explain a situation whereby a parent onew the child is Into Yahoo Yahoo and the parents keep covering up for him/her.
Peer pressure can also be the cause of Yahoo and Ritual killings in Nigeria. We as humans can't live in isolation, we all need people around us but the choice of people around us is very important. The friends around us will determine some traits seen in us. That's why some youths have been pressured to do what they shouldn't have done themselves.
In conclusion, it is easy to point fingers at one another but we should also realize that there are forces behind our decisions so as we are curbing it physically, we should also endeavour to pray about it.
**Always put God first **
@nagian👏 well clear you know what people can no longer stay until God bless them they won't quick action and quick action kill very faster than any other than things.
There are lot of cause to all these things happening , but before we go out let always pray for Devin protection from God if God has protecte you no one can harm you .
Those ritualist are very heartless they can do anything I said anything because of money if they do ritual and they are successful with out any trace they will come out and said that they get money from Yahoo not knowing that it is ritual and that they did.
Nigeria is the cause
**young shall grow**
@abbey: One just needs to be very vigilant and prayerful so we'll not experience such act of wickedness from the evil ones....
@youngElefiku23: There's no justification for doing what is bad. The fact that the country is not good is not enough reason for one to be involved in such treacherous act...
