    Absenteeism among secondary school students appears to be a serious and continuous problem that seems to transcend and defile all the strategies put in place by educational administrators in developing countries.
    The issue of absenteeism among secondary school students is not a new phenomenon, it is rather an old one. The incidence of absenteeism is mainly a student home based problem therefore there is need for the students, parents and teachers ot help identify and proffer solutions to this problem which could lead ot student drop out form school. The problem has persistently existed and if measures are not taken to rescue the situation, the society will continue producing indiscipline and irresponsible citizens which will be a big loss to families, communities and society in general. Two of the most important agencies that are responsible for the proper development of the children are the home and the school. As such educationists are increasingly interested in the incidence of absenteeism and the academic performance of students and if is believed that the incidence vary wisely according to the sophistication of the teaching opportunities provided for student.
    Ubogu (2004) identified illness, financial hardship, age, social class, educational level, permitted leave, geographical area as some causes of absenteeism. Unacceptable absence has a negative relationship on peer relationship, which could leaded to absenteeism.
    Davidson (2003) explained further that teacher identified effects of absenteeism on students as academic underachievement, increase cost and wastages, difficulty in making friends which could leads to boredom, loss of confidence and engagement in primitive sexual activity which could lead to pregnancy, drop out and stress among young students. The society also suffer as children of school age hang around in the streets intimidation other people and stealing properties of those who are in school or other place of work. There is need for a positive relationship between the school and the community in order toascertain the frequency of absenteeism in secondary schools. The purpose of this study is to focus attention on the causes and incidence of absenteeism among secondary school students.
