The writing has recorded a variety of definitions on the idea of defilement exuding from the point of view it is being considered and the introduction of the wellspring of the definition (Agbiboa, 2012; Egwemi, 2012; Mohammed, 2013; Ochulor, Metuonu, and Asuo, 2011; Yaru, 2009). These points of view cover the measurements of financial, political, bureaucratic, legitimate, social and good/moral slants of the idea. Also, the introduction of the wellspring of the definition is started on the disciplinary foundation of the creator or the researcher (Ochulor et al., 2011). The immense range of the definitions on the idea have a tendency to focalize on one focal topic which is control or something to that affect to get individual advantages to the detriment of others (be it the state, association or then again the residents). All the more essentially, that idea fills in as the exceptionally beginning stage for the voyage of characterizing defilement. As indicated by Atelhe and Agada (2014), defilement is a deduction of Latin starting point, “corruptus” which remains for; “to pulverize”, and it has been differently depicted as a methods for corruption or a technique of changing great into awful. Notwithstanding, Egwemi (2012) follows the source of the word in an unexpected way. He sees the word defilement as beginning from “rumpere”, a Latin verb signifying “to break”. Whatever might be the starting point of the word, debasement is clearly depicted in a negative stance as demonstrated by the two perspectives. The Black’s Law Dictionary then again, as refered to in Wells and Hymes (2012), depict debasement as “degeneracy, infiltration, or spoil; a debilitation of honesty, righteousness, or good standard; particularly the impedance of an open authority’s obligations by renumeration”. This definition despite the fact that shows up to some degree far reaching in the sense that it addresses a portion of the points of view whereupon defilement is seen, it is in any case, skewed towards the legitimate part of debasement. Likewise, the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary refered to in Ochulor et al (2011) considers it to be an unscrupulous or illicit conduct, particularly of individuals in specialist. Azeez (2011) fights that debasement is unscrupulous conduct or an improper demonstration which is deviation from the societal standards, values, guidelines and additionally conferring indecencies against the mainstream open prosperity. In this manner, in such manner debasement is seen from the legitimate what’s more, moral points of view, maybe buttressing the position held by numerous that the term has a kind of lawful meaning (Rumyantseva, 2005).
