Aims: It is most unfortunate that human rights are no fundamental freedom in Nigerian Universities because of secret cult activities. This article explores the evolution, activities and consequences of cults and cult-like organisations on Nigerian campuses. Cults, both on campus and in society in general, carry serious negative consequences for education.
Methodology/Procedures: In this study, we employed a qualitative research design that used document analysis to evaluate the activities of the secrete cults in Nigerian campuses. This approach was used because it enabled us to obtain and interpret information, its meaning and experiences from a broad standpoint.
Results: The presence of violent cults in institutions of learning has resulted in the death and injury of both students and faculty. Their activities continue to impact feelings of safety and security as well as the more tangible election and/or appointment of student and university governments. While cults have been active on campuses in Nigeria for more than three decades there are a number of steps that can be taken to discourage and decrease their presence.
Conclusion: It is imperative that students, parents, tertiary education administrations, legal entities, and government begin to take more immediate, concrete and consistent steps to actively extinguish this threat to education.
