According to Ogunade (2002) secret cult is an enclosed organized association of group devoted to the same cause. It is an enclosed group having an exclusive sacred ideology and series of rites cantering around their secret symbols.

What is even more baffling is the callous manner security student use sophisticated weapon of mass destruction among themselves. These problems are the Lauren of this research work. The paper intends to examine the extent of this menace with a focus of making useful suggestion for better academic communities in nation, the emergence of military rule in Nigeria when power was obtained as a result of violence.
