CHAPTER ONE

1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

Cultism in Nigeria has become a house hold name in most the Nigerian coimmunities and the activities are seen as normal before the citizens of Nigeria. The growth of cultism has significant effect on the social, political and economic development in Nigeria.

It is evident that cultism started in the higher institutions in Nigeria back to the early 50s by Nigerian’s only noble laureate, professor Wole Soyinka and the effect is seen in most of the Nigerian societies; although the motive behind the formation was to put an end to tribalism, political injustice etc so as to enhance social life in most of the Nigeria campuses.

According to Adejoro (1995) stated that little did Wole Soyinka and his friends realized that they were making history nor did they come to terms with the fact that students and indeed youths radicalism was being given a national boost and the unleashing of a national vanguard

The development was paradoxical to the extent that they little realized that they were laying the foundation for what was to be transformed eventually into gansterism. In defining cultism, Azelama, Alude and Imhonda (2000) noted that “cult is an assemblage of people united by certain ideals, or symbols and whose rites and ceremonies of veneration are unique and shrouded in mysteries with a secrecy that cannot be broken.” Maxey (2004) traces the meaning of cult from the Latin word ‘cultus’ which means ‘to worship or give reverence to a deity.’ Thus, in its original usage, it was simply applied to a religious worshipful group of people regardless of the object or person they venerated.

The prevalence of cultism has been seen in most of our communities, universities, organization and the Nigeria political system.

In most of our communities the effect of cultism is seen in the destruction of properties, hindrances to infrastructural development, harassment and molestation etc. which in turn affect the socio economic development and well being of the people in most of these communities. People find it difficult to go about their normal business especially those that trade at night. Cultism does not only affect the educational system in Nigeria but also the political system, the effect is seen most of the state during election.
