As part of our objectives on promoting awareness on fraud and other related matters, the Center for Counter Fraud Awareness (CCFA) on Wednesday 27th September 2017 visited Government Day Secondary School Karu, Abuja to sensitize students on crime and other related matters.
The program which started at about 12:30 pm, had in attendance Mrs Janet and Mr D. Bako of the monitoring unit of Secondary Education Board (SEB), the school VP Academics, teachers and students of the school and the Advocacy Team of CCFA headed by Mr Jonah Uket.
The presentation was divided into two parts, namely, the introduction of CCFA as a non-profit organization to the students, a short drama and a lecture on crime and its consequences. The students were made to understand crime, its types and categories; punishment meted out on criminals, law enforcement agencies, and effects of criminal acts on them as individuals and the society.
During the presentation, which was interactive, it was brought to their attention that heinous acts of cultism, examination malpractice, vandalism, online dating fraud, burglary, drug abuse/trafficking, rape, and others, are illegal. Engaging in these acts have grievous consequences like the destruction of families, serving of jail terms or death.
At the end of the session at 2.00pm, questions were asked by students and teachers. It ended with a photo and interview session.
