“It is very difficult to control what our children watch in this age of technology, the best thing is to restrict the programme to very late at night when our children must have slept,“ he told NAN.

Ezinne said the participants went there for economic gains and were ready to do anything that would earn them a win.
“Who will spoil, will spoil, though a few just go there to do rubbish, but nobody was forced to go there. What about children in school, do you know what they are doing?
“These ones see it as a job that will put food on their tables; children of these days, it is the grace of God they need not to go astray even when you lock them inside the house .
“In fact, I don’t see anything wrong in it, who will spoil will spoil.
“Even some married people live reckless lives, talk less of people who came out to struggle to get this opportunity and people will say it is bad,“ she said
