D one that are still in practice and it's very painful and shameful is allowing ur kids finger nails to keep growing with dirtiness because the child will be using it to fight in the dream.rubbish.


That when you bend down and look between ur legs in the market you will see spirits working with their head. I fear that one sha.

India giving Nigeria 99:1 but Sam Okparaji decided to kick the ball that turned to Lion,they kill him, that's why India will never go to any football competition again...is this true?

If you bend and look in between your legs in the market, you will see ghosts.
If you wash a dogs face and use the water to wash your face, you will see spirits at nights. They even have example of my cousin who did it and was running helter skelter and screaming throughout the night.
If a certain worm enters your ear, you will turn into the opposite gender.
if you eat mango and then take garri, you will die.
If you sit in the doorway, spirits will knock you
If you take holy communion home from church, it will become blood

That India was banned from Olympics because they always use juju to easily win every competition. Only much latter did I learn they were not banned - they simply never qualify for Olympics!

They were neither primitive nor superstitious but needed to maintain sanity in the community.
Sitting on a grinding stone is not good for various reasons and they found a way to discourage people from doing so.

Exactly, I'm with you on that.

1. If you kill a wall gecko, the head of your family will die.
2. If you lose one tooth or more, throw it on the top of a zinc roof. If a lizard picks it, it'll grow back.
3. If you look at yourself in a mirror at night, you'll have a nightmare.
4. If the sun is up and rain is falling simultaneously, then a lion has given birth.

I'd be lying to you if I told you I didn't believe those things, haha!

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)

They even said an Indian played a ball and the ball is still flying as we speak. So they were banned from international games. grin

Hard work doesn't mean being physically active BUT Being mentally articulate and active.

The Senator works hard by thinking out strategies and giving orders While the Bricklayer works hard by taking orders and physically running erands for the senator.

In all, HARD WORK PAYS, it all depends on how hard you choose to work

2. I will defeat Boko Haram within 3months in Office
3. I will create job to employ 3million, I mean 3million people per year (which kind lie be this?)
4. Fuel will reduce to 35naira

Abeg if you remember some of the lies, help me add yours.

That you don't mention snake and scorpion's names at night. If you do, you would see them. So instead of snake, rope and instead of scorpion, friend.

If you mess as a woman especially when cooking, your food would get sour before morning.


If in your dream you see yourself eating colanut, then your death is a matter of few days.

A child that doesn't know about the sun can look at it anytime of the day as long as the child wants it without being affected.
