Hitting your left leg on a stone
The hitting of your left leg on a stone or stump in the traditional Nigeria society is seen as an evil omen or warning to turn back from where ever the person might be going. This omen is taken seriously and the journey is usually forfeited for the future. Failure to heed the warning could lead to possibly loss of life.

Eating in the dark
Eating in the dark is forbidden in the traditional Nigerian society. It is believed that such act could give room to the dead or ghosts to eat with you and this could lead to your death or grave ailments.

Whistling at night
It is not a good idea to whistle at night in the traditional Nigerian society. There is this belief that such whistling attracts snakes to the whistler.

Lending money in the morning
If you expect the traditional Nigerian man to lend you money in the early hours of the morning or to pay up its debts, then you have got the wrong think coming. There is this strong belief in the traditional Nigerian society that giving money out in the early hours of the morning could bring a whole lot of bad luck across your way.

Eating the food of a woman seeing her messes
Perhaps this belief came from the biblical perspective that women on their monthly periods are unclean. Eating the food of women seeing their periods is generally believed to reduce sexual potency and weaken any talisman used by the male. This belief is strongly held by the traditionalists in the Nigerian society.

Owl crying on the roof of your house
Owls hooting on rooftop or on a nearby tree is a bad omen in the traditional Nigeria society as it is believed that someone in that house will soon die. In Nigerian and some other culture, owls are symbolism of witchcraft and its cries are taken with tenacity.

Your hands itching you without reason
If your hands are itching without reason, then it is believed that some kind of fortune is about to come your way. Whenever such itching occur, you see the traditional Nigeria man filled with smiles and happiness as he believes that some form of good fortune is about to come his way.

The above superstitious beliefs are just some of the beliefs that you would observe in the traditional Nigerian society.[/i]
