What should you do if you've eaten a taboo item without knowing?


Induce vomiting to purge it from your system.

Snails. Ukwuani land.

I've never eaten snails, will never knowingly eat them. If one unknowingly eats them, you're supposed to induce vomiting. If you can't, you're to go for ceremonial cleansing.

Chopping another man's wife is a taboo in my village ...''chopping" as in ''fvcking"....

But i understand that in some parts of Benue State, men give out their wives and daughters as Kola to visitors shocked...as in if you are spending the night in his house, he can delegate one of his wives or daughters to keep you in satisfactory coital company overnight....

Point is....one man's meat is another man's poison cool

Modified

I have been getting some mentions telling me the Benue tradition I stated above isn't true...sad

Up till tomorrow, adultery is not prohibited among the Tivi tribe in Benue State..there, you cannot be convicted for knacking someone's wife...

If you think I am lying, please find and read the cases of Apiko V Ikogi and Tofi v Uba, the latter having been decided by the Nigerian Court of Appeal..

For ease of reference, here are the cases' Court citations:

Tofi v Uba (1987) 3 NWLR PT.62 P.723 PARA A-H

APIKO UNOGWU V GABRIEL IKOGI-APPEAL NO. OHC/19A/2008

Yoruba don't cook any food that is against their culture. Therefore, any food cooked is edible

Hmmm none I know of actually. And i haven't been told there's a particular food we don't eat in my tribe/culture.. I believe anything goes as long as it's something edible (can be eaten by anyone) and nutritious.
