  4. Pounding mortar at night means you're inviting evil spirit

    Sweeping your compound at night is bad omen as well as sweeping out the sand from your room

    There's this insect whether it's centipede abi it's millipede but its bite is poisonous, if you should see it and call it by it's name it will varnish.. it is believed it is not seen in someone's room except it's been sent by someone spiritually to kill you

    1. Centipede and millipede na insect? Anyway, do you mean scorpion? Omg!!!

      Delete
    2. Centipede... Might be true if it was sent but to what I know, shit is so fast and has mad hiding skills..
      More like snake, we do call it eriri (rope) cause we were told if you call it by its name, the idiot will just hide away.

      You guys should stop killing geckos. They are there for a reason. They help in killing harmful insects. That is why the world is experiencing climate change. Do you know they are custodians? Nigerians u love to kill what you dont understand. Read about geckos and you ll know better.

  14. They said hitting one's leg on an object is a sign of something bad about to happen.

    We don't kill snakes in my villa, if a person kills a snake, then the person must give the snake a befitting burial. Failure to do so, the snake will continue to mess with you till you eventually die.

    Yes it's true. Evil people usually use Wall geckoes as a monitoring agent, this is why i kill any wall gecko i set my eyes on. (sorry to all of them if they're just innocent wall geckoes)

      Yes babe, @Shooter baby. It's not a myth, it's a fact. It's something like a traditional deity that everyone, be you whoever or whatever must adhere to.

  16. In Oraifite Ananmbra state, it is an abomination to kill a snake. Especially pythons. I have seen snakes in bad ass positions but the fear of killing people's gods is the beginning of wisdom. But we killed one Sha and damned the consequences....
    You see that looking in the mirror at night, that was just to scare us as kids. Sometime in 2017,I was tired of being restrained from looking in the mirror. I am mostly awake at night, and there's this urge to look in the mirror. I did all the hallucinations, expecting the very worst turn of events, then I went to the mirror and looked straight at it. I even flash light for my face but nothing. Nothing at all. Gaddamn myth..!
    In 2014 my family and I traveled home. I was in my room, lying in my bed when one of my cousins came and the next thing I heard is "Ewo!!" I was like what's doing this one, then she told me sleeping upside down and your head facing the door is evil. Inukwa!! Me that can't sleep unless I turn upside down.
    Growing up, we watched one Yoruba movie. One witch like that, whenever it's time for her to attend her meetings, she will go to her bed and place her legs on the wall.. since then my mother never failed to warn us to abstain from such. But guess who is a pro at placings her legs on the wall especially at night? Yours truly.
    I am from Arondizuogu and one time one elderly woman told us if we feel a sudden rush of breeze, or this heaviness in our head, that means a spirit is passing. Just stay mute. Oooouuu me wey no dey hear word. Everytime I feel such, especially when I go to my home town, instead of staying mute I ask " you wanna talk? I am a great listener o". I don't doubt it, ofcourse I believe this world is too deep. Ever since my dad's kinsman came to "visit" me, I have been feeling like a Ghost whisperer.

    1. What your grandmother told you is absolutely nothing but the truth,it just depends on weather it's a wicked or a kind spirit. They also cause you goose pimples and unexplained headache when they are out. Most times our pets sees them, majorly why they start making sounds and become restless at times with their attentions fixed at what they are seeing.
      You'd just be wondering what their problem is.
