As a strong step to help combat the uncontrollable increase in acts of violence, cultism, and gangstarism, the Sierra Leone Police (SLP) would today 5th May 2010 launch the Anti-Violence Movement in Sierra Leones top university college, the Fourah Bay College.

In an interview with the Head of Communication of the Sierra Leone Police Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Ibrahim Samura in his office on George Street in Freetown on Tuesday 4th May 2010, he revealed that the rationale behind the launch of the Anti-Violence Movement in the college is to help combat the increasing rate in acts of cultism, gangstarism and violence among students of the university. He said this movement has yield good dividend when launched in secondary schools and has also help immensely in tackling these un-tolerated acts among pupils in schools. He said these problems are now mostly seen and heard about in the universities that are supposed to be the pace setters.

Quite recently, the ASP went on, there has been cases of increased cultism, gangstarism and violence being practiced in the universities, especially the Fourah Bay College where gangstarism has claimed 6 (six) lives, cultism 1 (one) and a good number of violence cases had been recorded within a period of one year, 2009.

"We want students of the universities to champion the attitudinal change phenomenon of His Excellency the President of the Republic of Sierra Leone Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma" said ASP Samura.

Additionally, to complement this effort, ASP Samura disclosed, the SLP has designed plans to hold a day consultative conference for Vice Chancellors, Principal, Head Teachers, Teachers, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), and other important sectors in the academic struggle in a bid to pass on the message of peace and hammer acts of cultism, gangstarism, and violence among schools and colleges.
