How Do You Keep Armed Robbers From Visiting You? by gbagudara: 10:04am On Jun 02, 2010
The wave of armed robbery is still in high gear in the country. What advise do you have for Nigerians abroad who have plans to come home and settle down, do business etc?

It all depend on the area where you are planing to live. But this small guide should help you or anyone who is planing to go back and settle down in Nigeria. Keep as much low profile as you can, not too much efisi, especially around the area that you are residing. Be selective and be carefull with families and friends especially the ones that you have not seen for a long time, they might not be the same Dele, Chkwudi or Fatimo you used to know. Adjust quickly to the lifestyle and the mentality of the people around you, study the people you meet very well, some are still trustworthy. If you want to do the BIG BOYZ thing, do it a bit far away from home, where you are not known in the company of a trustworthy person. If you are not married, please one woman at a time. Be carefull answering strange numbers on your mobile phones, they could be 419ers and strange girls with sexxxy voice will call your number pretending that they dial a wrong number, please do not ask me how this people will come about your phone number, one way or the other they will get it. If you don't know them, you don't talk to them and if you do, make it short and quick. Be humble and nice to the people around you regardless of their class, you might need them one day. There are lots of things, fun and business opportunity to discover in Nigeria, but you can only achieve this if you feel secure among the people. The way you start determines your success and failure in the country. I travelled down to Nigeria 3 to 4 times in a year and I have always enjoyed each moment, am glad to say that am half way through my preparation of relocating back to Nigeria. Before you finally relocate, I will advice you to be traveling off and on to Nigeria until you feel good about settling down in the country.

Keep a very low profile, avoid late nights, be unpredictable as when coming or going back, watch your conversations in public.
