Again, four objective questions were examined in the course of carrying out the investigation. A survey research method was employed. Data were collected using twenty-two structured items. The total population for the study was 400 respondents - 360 students and 40 teachers. The findings of the study was analyzed using simple percentage, frequency table and mean score. The result of the findings  showed that ICT can take away valuable learning time, it can be overused, also it can turn educational experiences into games for students and thus enhances low academic performances, it also exposes students to porn sites and can distract them during class hours.
