Abstract
The study was designed to determine the influence of leadership role on deviant behavior with respect to destructive practices and truancy among female students in southern Cross River State, Nigeria. The survey design was used for this study. The Student Self Report Inventory (SSRI) questionnaire was used to collect data. The sample for this study consisted of four hundred (400) SS111 female students. The data collected were statistically analyzed using the independent t –test. The findings revealed that female students who play leadership role involve themselves in destructive practices more than female students who do not play leadership role. The findings also revealed that female students who do not play leadership role involve themselves in truancy more than students with leadership role. Based on the findings, it was recommended that school authority should be able to detect early misbehavior and help the child while he is still receptive to treatment than he will be later.
