Security Tips:

1) What should a woman do if she finds herself alone in d company of a strange male as she prepares to enter a lift in a high-rise apartment late @ night?
Experts Say: Enter the lift. If you need to reach the 13th floor, press all the buttons up to your destination. No one will attack you in a lift that stops on every floor.

2) What to do if a stranger tries to attack you when you are alone in your house, run into the kitchen.
Experts Say: You alone know where the chili powder and turmeric are kept.And where the knives and plates are. All these can be turned into deadly weapons. If nothing else, start throwing plates and utensils all over.
Let them break. Scream. Remember that noise is the greatest enemy of a molester. He does not want to be caught.

3} Taking a Taxi at Night.
Experts Say: Before getting into any vehicle at night, note its registration number.Then call your family or friend & pass on the details to them in the language the driver understands. Even if no one answers your call, pretend U are in a conversation.The driver now knows someone has his details and he will be in serious trouble if anything goes wrong. He is now bound to take U home safe & sound. A potential attacker is now Ur de facto protector!

4}What if the driver turns into a street he is not supposed to - and you feel you are entering a danger zone?
Experts Say: Use the handle of your purse or your scarf to wrap around his neck and pull him back. Within seconds, he will feel choked and helpless. If you don’t have a purse or scarf just pull him back by his collar.The top button of his shirt would then do the same trick.

5} If you are stalked at night.
Expert Say: enter a shop or a house and explain ur predicament. If shops are not open, go inside an ATM box. ATM centers always have security guards. They are also monitored by Close Circuit television. Fearing identification, no one will dare attack you.

Please spread it to all d women (& men) you care about & spread awareness.

The question is; can these security tips be applicable in Naija?
