- A Nigerian lady with the Twitter handle @EdoFirstLady has lambasted men who collect gifts they buy for their lovers after breaking up with them
- The young lady said such act is a gutter behaviour and that those who engage in it have mental disorder
- Nigerians on social media took to the comment section of the post to share their thoughts on it
A Nigerian lady identified as Nora Stone has described as stupid the idea of a man collecting a gift he bought his lover because the relationship didn't work out.
Taking to her Twitter page to speak on the issue, Nora said such act is gutter behaviour, adding that anyone who does it needs to heal from a mental disorder.
In her words:
"Taking back gifts you bought for someone you claim to love when y’all fall apart is gutter behavior. It makes no sense at all.
"Strong gutter behavior. And no it’s not pettiness, it’s sheer stupidity & nonsense. And I hope you heal from it if you do this. Because you dey ment."
While some disagreed with Nora, others agreed with her as they flooded the comment section of the post with their thoughts.
"Because y'all don't even have anything you buy . Even God collect what he gives to you when you go against him. Ask saul."
"The day women start giving more in a relationship then we might give a listening ear to wat u just wrote here.
"You can't dictate to me how to grief my breakup, if taking back the gifts I got you will make me feel a little bit better then I'm doing it, my mental health matters."

"If you will confiscate what you brought for your babe during a misunderstanding or after a break up, you are better off not gifting her in the first instance.
"... for your mental health."
"If women gave more in relationships, they would be the ones taking back their gifts. But Nigerian women are about taking, and that's why this stone is crying here."
