Youths are oftentimes regarded as the prospective leaders of their countries. Nevertheless, many youths in sub-Sahara Africa, in Nigeria and Cameroun precisely, are potential absconders from homes of orientation. Some of the responsible variables are mind-body problem, alternative thinking, and poverty to mention a few. These variables are the identified drivers of dimensions of insecurity and/or crises that are witnessed in both countries. Given this, the study demonstrates the role of the fugitive youths in the abating terror attacks at the frontiers and within some regions of Nigeria and Cameroun. Also, the study argues that priority should be accorded to the factors inducing fugitive youths to embrace antisocial/anti-societal behaviours, especially terrorism within the Nigeria and Cameroun. To achieve these objectives, survey interview and desktop research were employed
