You, a woman wants to go out and you are not taking these extremely NECCESSARY precautions? Shame!
Yes, I know you are single, but any man will do. Brother? Nephew? Cousin? Gateman? Does not really matter. Is he a man? Is he a bit taller than you? Take him along.

Okay, dragging whole men around might be a bit stressful, so why not something symbolising your ties to one?
Just keep in mind that Nigerian men cheat a lot, so they probably will not care.
A lot of times the second might not work, so this is where the third comes in. I know it is just a short walk, but you need to be more armed than the fighters in Sambisa. Sword, gun, bazooka, battle axe etc will do
Oh no, this will not stop the harassment, but it could get them hurt and you may catch a court case.
Just cover everything and look as unattractive as possible

It is not because you did not follow some rules and regulations, but because someone felt they have agency over your own body.
