Cultism is any form of organisation whose activities are kept away from the knowledge of others,but such activities are caried out at odd hours of the day and they often clash with the values of everyday life. The early cult group was founded in 1953 in university of ibadan by wole soyinka and other elites as at then,it was established with the aim of protecting the interest of students and fight against injustice melted on them by lecturers and even the school authority
However,in our school today society,the reason for esterblishing cult has been thrown to the background.instead of protecting lives,they now endangers it.both members and innocent people.
REASON WHY STUDENTS JOIN CULT
1.SEARCH FOR SECURITY:many students believes that joining secret cult will give them peeace and power that protect them against others.
2.RESURE FROM FAMILY:some join cultism because of the pressure they receive from their family.and so,look for solace in cult.
3.TO PROTECT THEIR LOVE ONES:some guyz join cult to protect their loved ones or girlfriends.
4.TO BOOST ONES EGO:some be when they join cultism it will make them popular or give them sense of belonging.
EFFECT OF CULTISM
1.It leads to expulsion of members.
2.It endangers life.
3.It disturb the peace of the school.
4.Members are not safe,they are always afraid of being attacked by others.
In conclusion,I urge students to say NO to cultism.it does not offer any thing good.rather,it makes it difficult for one to graduate without fear of cultist.
