Abstract

Engaging in inhuman ritual activities for wealth creation, popularly known as Yahoo-Plus, is at unimaginable levels in Nigerian societies, particularly in Delta state now. There are widespread incidences of missing female university undergraduates and other girls of school age. It is quite disheartening that the younger generations are caught in the evil and mindless acts of killing for money rituals. This study examined the incidence of Yahoo-Plus activities among in-school adolescents in Delta State, Nigeria. The study was a quantitative type and descriptive survey design was adopted. A total of 800 in-school adolescents at both secondary and tertiary institutional levels were purposively selected as samples for the study. An inventory entitled ‘Incidence of Yahoo-Plus Activities Inventory’ was designed to collect data. The results revealed that students at both secondary and tertiary institutions attested that Yahoo-Plus activities were prevalent due to youngsters’ desire to get rich quickly, rather than waiting or toiling.
