I don't know how this is "true" though....

Some uncles and sisters with mamas self told me if I whistle with my mouth in a hot afternoon, snake will come out and bite me .....

I was 7yrs old DAT time, but since I have been whistling (morning, afternoon, night, even midnight) not even a bush snake has come out to attack me undecided

They are many more they told us just to dey make us afraid embarassed those days .......share if you have one.

Numerous primitive superstitious tales.

Was told not sit on a grinding stone, that my mother would die if I do so.
Someone once told me not to draw line on the ground, that if an ant walked into it, it is death.

Can't mention them all.

I was restless when I was younger,
I would be eating and playing around.
My mom(God rest her soul) told me if I eat standing up, the food will be going to my legs....I believed her.

That if you stand on a rock/stone,you won't grow tall again.

Answering your name when you thought that someone is calling you is a taboo.

When you are walking and saw a drawn line on your way, don't cross it. Look for another way to pass. Your destiny will be destroyed if you do.

Mrs.koikoi, and her infamous shoe, the pretty teacher that died and her ghost was haunting the community school (I nearly died of fear because of this one grin)

The India and Nigeria match. 100-1 grin. I think everyone was served this lie with hot peppersoup and chilled drink cheesy
