CAUTION!

CAUTION!

– Restraints in Yorubaland

YORUBA: Ẹni tí a ṣẹ̀ tí ò d’árí ji’ni, t’ó bá fún ni l’óbì ká má jẹ́.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION BY DELE AJAJA: Don’t ingest the kola nuts offered by an unappeasable person.

CLARIFICATIONS: It is given that one should be cautious when dealing with an exacting individual. Attentive people pay attention to what they consume when associating with unappeasable people. This is akin to advising someone not to shower with gasoline when some people are trying to set him ablaze.
