- Don’t give out your pen in the banks: A lot of Nigerians are always in a hurry, most of them always go to banks without a pen. They usually depend on other customers for a pen since most banks don’t provide pen for their customers. After using the pen, most of them don’t return the pen unintentionally, it is either they give out the pen to the next available person looking for a pen or they go out of the bank in a hurry with the pen and continue their daily dealings.
2. Don’t Argue with a Nigerian Army: The Nigerian Army is very professional and don’t tolerate indiscipline from the citizens. Some of theit soldiers behave irrational sometimes that is why it is advisable not to argue with them especially when you are at fault.
3. Don’t steal in public places: We all know stealing is bad and not acceptable anywhere in the world, but in Nigeria, you might not be arrested immediately, you might be seriously beaten or get killed by the angry mob before the arrival of law enforcement officers.
4. Don’t Put Your Wallet in Your Back Pocket
Even though most Nigerians nice and helpful there are always folks looking to take advantage of unsuspecting tourists (and locals!). Never place your wallet in your back pocket, as you are bound to lose it – sometimes without even knowing.
Always be vigilant and keep an eye on your wallet, particularly when you’re in a bus stops, market or any other crowded place.
