5 Nigerian Women Tell Us The Worst Thing They Did Because Of Anger

December 9, 2020

People do a lot of things when they are overcome with emotion. We asked five Nigerian women the worst things they have done because they were angry.

Tracy, 31

I had a terrible day at work and I was returning home when someone hit my car. I wasn’t so bothered because I had insurance. When I got down to inspect the damage, the man started shouting at me. He said “na why dem no suppose allow woman to drive”. I was so angry, I slapped him. I also did not inform my insurance company, and made him pay for everything.

Funke, 20

My roommate and I had not gotten along since we moved in together. She is always doing something unnecessarily nasty to me, and finding out she had sex with her boyfriend on my bed was the straw that broke the camel’s back. The next night, she slept in her friend’s house because we did not have light. I cut tiny visible holes in all her white and black clothes. She missed her test that morning, and I was happy.

Titi, 27

Our daughter was on admission in the hospital because she was really sick. After spending two days in the hospital, I went to see her father to ask if he could stay for a while so I could use that day to rest. While I was talking to him about how sick she was, he kept playing games on his Xbox. So, I smashed the television.

Zainab, 19

It was in Secondary school and my seat partner at the time had been spreading a lot of lies about me. A few days to our exam, all her notes got lost “mysteriously”. Then during the exam when she asked for answers, I would give her the wrong ones.

Anita, 24

The landlord in our house has really big dogs. He claims they are for our protection, but all they do is bark really loudly all the time. One day, they did not allow me sleep, so I bought poison and mixed with their food. I have never been so happy to hear that a dog died.
