The solid existence of cult groups within the university community, towns and villages has completely made the environment unsafe for both staff, students and other people in the environment. Youths in the country involves themselves with cults in other to be identified as relevant authorities. These cults usually fight to advance the selfish rights and privileges of their members which include passing examinations, acquiring girl friends, accommodation and to intimidate. The possible effects of cultism on youths cannot be exhausted as both intra and inter-cult clashes negatively affect them in stupendous proportions.

Cult clashes leads to an outburst of violence on the campus which may leave the students wounded, and same to the villagers, just as many could be dead too as the case may be. Some cult clashes are so catastrophic that loss of infrastructure and other resources will be colossal and eventually the funds that would have been spend on the provision of other facilities and infrastructure on the campus will be used in replacing damaged ones. The result of waste of capital is the reduction of quality and quantity of education. Realising the havoc which cultism has wrecked on youths, all hands must be on deck to check their activities. It is therefore imperative on the part of the societies and the university communities in Nigeria. We need to shun violence and shift attention on positive societal values which will enhance positive growth. God bless
