#ThisIsNigeria: Your Phone Not Yours


#41

Lesson 101 for Lagosians.


#42

Lol… Where there’s crowd, in Nigeria, everyone is a suspect.

I’m more concerned with crossing my bag and keeping it in front, being conscious of the zips and pockets, than being concerned about who stepped on me. I don’t keep any valuable in the exposed pocket sef.


#43

Lol. Yes, really.
I remembered the exact day because it was when I resumed work after the Sallah holidays.


#44

Lol. “His phone”


#45

Lol, this is sad and funny at the same time. Nice and touching story Ruth. I’ve never lost a phone once but hope I can attend your class for all the new biros some people borrow from me that never gets returned?


#46

Especially at the bank. They come with no Biro and leave with one. At least the bankers are smarter. They tie the pen to their desk. It’s people like me that are left without a pen. :sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob:

Numerous phone theft experience…
I soak my phone in anointing oil
It has gotten to a point where we will be placing our phones under church altars for protection and fortification lol
Nice piece Ruthie

FAM, My welcome gift to UNILAG was my phone getting stolen. Second time was the most hilarious, Nigga said I should tie my shoe lace that wasn’t unlossed, he kept insisting I should tie my shoe lace… It for brother to remove my phone. By the time my head clicked, I was just appreciating his intellect rather than cry…

#59

If it is possible to be putting small padlock sef. But they can cut under the bag. So holding it at your front is the most reliable. But they can use charm. So prayer is the key too
