Zarrouk undertook a prospective study in which he attempted to replicate the findings of Mellor in a different culture. The attempt in this retrospective study is to replicate the studies of Mellor and Zarrouk with the following questions and predictions in mind.

To what extent are first rank symptoms manifested by schizophrenic patients in Nigeria? It was predicted that first rank symptoms are not of common occurrence in a Nigerian population.

It was also predicted that there would be a difference in occurrence of symptoms in the Nigerian population, compared with that examined by Mellor in Europe, there would be no difference from that studied by Zarrouk.
