Abstract:This paper examines the growth of cults in Nigeria's post-primary and tertiary educational institutions. This social malady has caused malfunctioning and distortions in these institutions. The origin of these cults in Nigeria can be traced back to Nigeria's pioneer students of the early 1950s, especially at the University of Ibadan. While their activities were purposeful and harmless, modern cults, on the contrary, turn out to be violent and destructive. These cults should be eradicated using Islamic values and education.
