With crime-rate escalating in society, Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya Nigeria (MKAN), has embarked on nationwide campaigns against various forms of crimes among the students of secondary and post-secondary schools.
In his remarks, the National President of MKA, Aina Saheed said, “A lot of efforts are being put in place by the government and other institutions in fighting against the menace of crimes. Unfortunately, as they make these efforts, the available statistics on these crimes keep growing.”
As a result, Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya Nigeria has acknowledged the need to accelerate efforts to build the moral and spiritual capacity of members of the society, especially the youth, as a preventative measure from attraction to crimes.
In his remarks, the National Project Manager of “Stop The Crime” (STC) project, Popoola Isiaka Olamilekan said, “MKAN’s STC project started in 2015 and ever since then, it has become a yearly event. During our campaigns this year, the project was carried out in ten states of the federation (Ekiti, Edo, Delta, Kaduna, Kano, Kwara, Ogun, Osun, Lagos and Oyo), including the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. Our 344 volunteers were able to visit 40 schools and spend 55 hours reaching out to 17,180 beneficiaries.”
“Stop The Crime” is one of the numerous projects of Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya Nigeria. Other projects of the organisation include free medical expeditions, regular blood donations, tree planting, organisation of capacity building trainings, promotion of talents among youth, promotion of inter-religious peaceful coexistence and carrying out numerous community-based supports.
