BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
The origin of truancy among secondary school students situated at Ikpoba Okha
Local Government Area of Edo State. The schools in Ikpoba Okha are divided it
names from the clan of origin in the early state, the population of the school
were few but now they are vast. Today, among the students of the schools there
was many truants and deviant behaviour has greatly hindered the progress of the
schools generally. I have taken it up as a responsibility to find out the
causes of the truancy and the way to stop the evil. This long essay on the
causes of truancy is intended to take a critical look into one or the major
rules that influence students to the truancy in secondary schools. Some of the
truants students will go with their fellow students to indulge in watch video
in their own resident.
Justice R. A. L. Ogbobin, said that broken homes are assess to truancy. Truancy
is a great danger in a discipline school possibly the whole students in the
school to delinquent. This is true because students initiative and don’t at the
moment realized the consequences of their delinquency. The measuring of the
truancy in the secondary school students, I shall be taking a random sample of
the truants find out from that the cause of truancy from their homes, schools
and the society they live. It is against this research in the solution of the
above measure of truancy and not far fetch. The teacher should advice the
parents of the students to provide the students with adequate or requisite
school materials and also let parents know the problem if causes failing to do
so, teacher should not bully on the students, because hinder the students
backwardness. A student should be corrected by the teacher. The government
should go further to make law to punish those couples whose home are broken
leaving the children to play truancy.
It is against this background that this research work is structured to examine
the factors and consequences (effects) of truancy on students of origin and
destination which will be vividly focused on Benin City. I shall finally
suggest suitable measures that should help to reduce the evil.
STATEMENT OF PROBLEMS
Over a long period of time the problem of truancy among students in secondary
school a drift has been a serious one which generated a matter of concerns
among scholars. This problems of truancy has militated against the goals and
objectives setup by the parents and our educational policy makers for the

creates a high rate of absenteeism this leads to the poor result of the
students truancy can mislead some students to different kinds of crime of the

in the life of the students themselves their parents and in turn development of
