Fresher...you would still learn...first and foremost unilag has a very low level of cultism and violence...if uve been to other federal schools ,you would understand...and the longer you stay the more you would understand how to manage situations like that...Welcome to unilag.

Cultism just has to stop. Robbery among students is perpetrated by cultists.
Re: "Obtaining" Is Now A Culture In Unilag by rickymayne(m): 10:36am On Jun 14
The one thing that bother me is...unilag is this kind of school where if you complain about the bad egg in your indomie...they would just stop giving you both the indomie and the egg...I just pray unilag managements dont see this post...cos they would take it out on the innocent students with their crazy rules...if dem see this post im sure they would start doing 6pm curfew...dont expect the university to be like your secondary school...it comes with exposure...you would definitely learn and know how to handle such situations with time, irrespective of casualties which is normal...i can say that unilag security is like 80% ...the security personnel also warn you not to walk around some areas when it gets dark...at your own risk!

Make I no fresh because say na book I come read abi?

Lemme drop this here:
Countless number of times, I have seen people try to portray the likes of Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Aliko Dangote e.t.c as rich people who don’t live a flashy lifestyle just because they don’t wear “Gucci” and all other designers considered as “flashy/classy” being worn by Hushpuppi and all other celebrities. I can’t help but laugh at their ignorance.

Taking the owner of Facebook as an example, they say he “ordinary plain grey T-shirts” despite having a net worth of over 72 billion USD. Have you ever tried checking out how much each of the T-shirt costs? In case you’re not informed, each of them costs around $300-$400 and he has lots and lots and lots of them. There are even rumors he doesn’t wear a T-shirt twice. So you can imagine how wearing $2100-$2800 worth of “ordinary plain grey T-shirts” a week portrays you as being “simple”.

Do you even know he spent $100 million on buying two properties on Kauai Island in 2014 alone? He has several other properties which amounts to millions of dollars. Now is that still a “simple” life? Bill Gates owns a house that costs $123 million and he’s a “simple” man just because he doesn’t wear Gucci?

The fact that people spend money on what they wear doesn’t mean they don’t have investments/businesses. A person buys an iPhone X/Samsung S9 plus and the next thing people say is “He should have bought a land in Ibeju”, “Why didn’t he invest that money on cryptocurrency?”, “Oh, he is living a fake life. He should have invested the money on landed properties”. Do you know if the person in question has built two houses in Ibeju already? Do you know if he has a substantial amount of digital currencies? Do you even know if he doesn’t like the idea of doing business at all?

The point is, we all have different personalities and what entices or makes us happy are distinct from one another. We all have different mentalities. So, if man A decides to spend HIS money on clothing and fashion items, man B might decide to spend HIS on buying cars. Man C might decide to spend it on houses. This doesn’t mean man A is trying to be flashy or man C is a “simple” man. It all depends on what makes you happy.

Everyone is entitled to his/her own kind of lifestyle!

A whole load of trash to justify the fake life of poor black people in their shittyhole nations.
Mark Zuckerberg spends what % of his earnings and wealth on clothing compared to the % spent by mentally lazy blacks who slave for him and other whites?

We learn everyday, i finished from unilag a few years ago. I am not sure about private universities, but these things happen in most public universities. The last time i went to Unilag, there were security men with Pump action rifles, guess that did not help. Its the same in the outside world, so brace yourself. Folks that believe that they are strong will always try to prey on those they perceive as weak.
When going out at night, walk through well lit areas. Make friends and stop walking alone (be a liverpool fan, just kidding). I was never obtained because , My voice was very hoarse and my face strong. My pidgeon game was tight. Plus i had some friends that feared nobody (Based on where they grew up), and we were always together.

I no say make you go join bad gang o.

It's a very common thing in FUTO. A friend of mine was robbed of his phone, wallet, and even the clothes he wore were robbed of him. He came back to his lodge with only boxers.

The blacks you consider lazy, do you know what % of their earnings and wealth they spend on clothing?

It’s obvious the only time the word “wisdom” and your name can appear in a sentence is when it says you lack it.

The % of their earnings and wealth spent on clothing is evident in their total dependence on whites for all their modern products and services.
I hope that your wisdom can fathom that in order to make amends in your priorities.

You're smart.I never went to DLI/Back gate/high rise areas at night and this was even in the late 1990s.I never heard of any incidences as a unilag jambite then but a sharp boy can just tell those areas are security risk at night,too quiet even in the day.

Try walk or look mean just a little. It works every time.

UnilagPwins:
"Obtaining" is a popular word used by most students on campus. If you're just hearing that, don't worry, I'll explain it to you. "To obtain" means to forcefully collect one's property either by using armed instruments (e.g knife, gun) or using some strange or scary voice..(can I call this "robbery "�) I don't know any other way to explain this but as you read through, you'll surely understand what I'm talking about. Permit me, cos I'm gonna be making use of the word "obtain".

"Obtaining" as become a culture in the university of Lagos (no offence. I'm also a student there�) and a lot of people have kept quiet about this, maybe because of the pressure or the response they get after reporting to the security officers or maybe to their friends and you know how friends do behave, especially guys. They'll just laugh over it or call you names like "ode" (meaning "fool"wink.

I was once in the midst of my friends when a guy came in and was talking about this same issue. He shared his experience with us, how some notorious guys went away with his belongings (his phones, laptop and the little cash with him) after threatening to kill him if he shouts or make any silly move. He said,

"I was on my way home after we had an evening class in my faculty (revising for my forthcoming exams). I usually pass this road and something like this has never happened to me but I've heard of it a lot. It was 7:45pm when I left my faculty and was heading towards the second gate when I heard someone calling. At first, I pretended to be deaf not until two guys walked past and stopped me. The first guy was like " where u dey go?" and I replied him immediately that I was on my way home. At that point I noticed everywhere was so quiet and there was hardly anyone passing through that route. It was only the three of us there. Then I knew that I've entered into the lion's den�. The first thing I thought of was the laptop with me. It was given to me by my friend to make use of, for a quick revision. At that point I knew everything was just gonna disappear. I gave up.

The second guy told me to bring everything I have on me. At first, I tried to prove stubborn by not giving them anything not until the other guy showed me a gun� just below his belly. Well, I've watched lots of Nigerian movies where they make use of toy guns to rob, but I can't risk my life at that moment, besides, that was the first time someone's gonna show me a gun. Immediately, I gave them my 2 phones (with the charger�), laptop and my wallet (containing about 7k). I was just praying to God to come rescue me�. As soon as they collected everything, they disappeared into the thin air. I was speechless. I didn't even know when I shouted and some guys came and I narrated everything that happened to them. All they told me was to be careful next time, that incidents like this do happen, even on campus. Well, I'm a fresher. Maybe this is the way Unilag wants to welcome me�

After the guy narrated the whole story, my friends just bursted in laughter. "Sheybi u go dey form jagaban for campus. Why u no fight them na", said Uche, one funny guy in my dept.

But, truth be told, incidents like this are happening everyday and I know one of you reading this has been into such situation, one way or the other, or you know someone who has. Students are no longer safe in the campus environment and some have made a decision, never to step out of their hostel once it 7:00pm. Some have even decided never to stay on campus till they finish their education, due to incidents like this.
Yes, we know a university is a place where we meet different kind of people from different part of the country but if we all make up our mind to curb this social act by students (yes...students are the ones involved), working alongside with the management of the university, then we can for sure alleviate this mess.

I just hope this article gets approved so that people can be aware of what's happening in the University of Lagos. And the management of the university can do something about it or do more (if they're working on it). We're tired of this. Come to our rescue.�

I totally agree to this, guys will always be guys and I can relate to this.

When I got to the hostel, I told dem about my ordeal that they packaged FuFu inside blackberry case for me and the next thing I heard shocked me "o pe ooo, I kuku get soup... bring fufu make we chop" I just weak straight up, if I come this world again, I will still be a guy... Ogun kiiiii Emotion
