The parents of youths found guilty of cultism in Lagos State may become liable for punishment if a bill for the prohibition of unlawful societies and cultism in Lagos is passed into law.
This was part of the submission of some lawmakers at the state House of Assembly during plenary on Tuesday.
The members were discussing the bill sent by the Attorney General of the state, Mr Moyosore Onigbanjo.
In his contribution, the Majority Leader of the House, Sanai Agunbiade, representing Ikorodu 1, said sponsors of cultism were not captured under the bill.
He said, “The suspected student should be investigated before suspension. Parents of students who engage in any cult group should also be liable,” he said.
