He said that though the place of peer pressure cannot be overlooked, a child who is properly trained in the way of God will not go wayward.
The media aide asked the following questions:
“How many of our parents today question their children's source of wealth? How many of our parents today know where their children are living? How many of our parents today know the kind of friends children are keeping? How many of our parents will reject money given to them by their children because they know the money is illegal?”

Man impersonates EFCC
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that officers of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arrested a man, Ladeji Kelvin Babatunde, who impersonated the agency for his selfish interest.
In a press release by the commission on its official Instagram page, it revealed that Babatunde reportedly defrauded yahoo boys of more than N38 million.
They stated that he collected the money as a bribe from them as a way to save them from arrest by the commission.
