The spate of almost daily despicable and weird front page headlines in Nigerian Newspapers and Magazines about the murderous, ruinous and catastrophic nocturnal activities of cultists in Nigerian educational institutions; has been a rather vivid and graphic reminder of the total decay in Nigeria's national pSyche occasioned by many years of ravenous, ~olent and corru'~l military dictatorships. Tltis paper which is ruminations of a dyspeptic · ex~student, ·examines the · comparative global perspective of cultismjuxtaposi~git with the bghly explosive, . vexing and contentious character of cultism in Nigerian educational institutions highlighting the raison d'etre, the modus operandi, the;socio-politico-economic consequences of o.Ut activities in the society . and· solutions to this · tmcanny behaviour. Although the paper took exceptions in the above contending issues and the fact that cultism is an ancient global phenomenoii, it nevertheless inclines towards the perspective th~t ·cultism can be ·eradicated from Nigeria~ higher . education institutions if the moral political will is developed to do so
