Magun in Yorubaland

There is a charm in the South-Western part of Nigeria that discourages extra-marital affairs.

Somewhere in the heap of human interest stories are strange tales of magun that condemns a cheating wife or woman and her lover to public ridicule or death.

Magun is a charm that originates from the Yoruba tribe in Nigeria. It literally means “do not climb.” Magun has been used for centuries to catch a wife who has an extra-marital affair or to put a promiscuous woman in check. Some parents are known to put magun on their daughters to discourage pre-marital sex and ward off rapists.

In most circumstances, the charm is put on a woman without her knowledge. A stick of broom or thread is usually placed on the floor for a woman to unknowingly walk over it. Once she works over the thread or broom stick, the charm takes its effect.
