Top KNUST Lecturer Blows Cover On Occultism Practices By Students in Ghanaian Universities

According to a criminologist who teaches at Ghana's Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, some students at the country's universities practice occultism and voodoo.

Dr. Jones Opoku-Ware claims that these rituals give them the confidence they need to commit acts of anarchy and violence.

His remarks came in response to vthe recent violent conflict between two dorms at KNUST and the University of Ghana.

The lecturer said that a growing thirst for violence among the kids is to blame for the violent fights at the schools in an interview with Rainbow Radio 87.5FM.

The instructor explained the problem and its history by saying that young people today want to do damage to property for no other reason than to vent their anger.

He concluded that our educational system, our family, and our faith communities had all failed us.

This is evidence of the breakdown of society as a whole. Our social structures need to work if we wish to raise up dependable people. There is a window of opportunity between birth and age seven that is unparalleled in a child's development. The family is responsible for molding the next generation into the kind of people society values. But the family system we have been a part of has been broken for a long time. It's concerning to see the moral fabric of our society crumbling apart before our eyes, he lamented.

He rehashed occult practices that have taken place on many campuses and asked, "Is it any surprise that institutes of higher learning have become breeding grounds for lawlessness and vandalism?" furthermore, "I'm telling you that on most college campuses, some students engage in occultism and divine worship.

They have their own set of deities that they honor. What they do is this. Colleges and universities fall into this category. If you insist on engaging in such activities, at least make an effort to put them to good use rather than committing illegal acts.
