The founder of the Faith Revival Apostolic Church (FRAC), Apostle Paul Adenuga, has said that the main reason behind the stealing of pants by young men is the quick money syndrome.
The popular cleric stated that the viral stealing of female pants for ritual is a very disgraceful act, adding that the menace was on the rise because religious leaders no longer preach about the ills of the society.
Adenuga condemned the act at the Christian Press of Nigeria (CPAN) breakfast meeting held in Lagos recently.
“You can imagine, some men go to steal women pants because they want to make sudden money and some of these men are caught and displayed on social media, what a shame,” NAN quoted him as saying.
The cleric posited that many churches preached more about how to make money and neglected the real gospel message that has moral instructions to help cultivate good virtues in Nigerian youths.
He, therefore, urged parents, especially mothers, to intensify prayers for their wards not to be involved in the shameful acts.
Recall that some ritualists have been stealing female underwear, sometimes at gunpoint, particularly around campuses of tertiary institutions.
Although the veracity of the claims that such stolen undies are used for ritual purposes has not been established, such reports have instilled fear into the hearts of ladies living in such areas, resulting in fear and panic.
