A "Upsurge of Money Ritual among Youths in Nigeria and National Security" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-5 | Issue-3, April 2021, pp.78-84, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd38664.pdf

This study examines the threat of money ritual among youths in Nigeria, a subject that has received little or no sufficient academic attention and it socio-political and national under-pinning have largely been ignored in state responses. The apparent downward trend in socio-economic greediness and quest for material possession, have led to increase in the number of youth using fetish practices to come to term with prevailing socio-economic demands. The focus of this paper therefore is to critically analyze the upsurge of money ritual among youths in Nigeria. Pivoting the theoretical framework of the study on Robert .K. Merton’s anomie-strain theory, to the effect that “Innovation” in which goals are pursued but legitimate means is eliminated, and illegitimate means is created and used. The paper concludes that money ritual is a threat to national security and therefore, recommends among others, provision of employment opportunities to jobless youth, effective policies to combat the scourge of poverty, address the widening gap of inequality, and reward core value of honesty and hard work review of security architects.
