There is nothing wrong with buying a new phone as a student in Nigeria but if you are on a budget or want to cut cost on the amount you planned to spend on getting a mobile phone, you can as well buy a cheap used mobile phone in Nigeria.
The question that normally comes to mind about used mobile phone in Nigeria is if the phone will serve its purpose. There are many badly used phones out there in the street. Dubious sellers are at large trying to dupe people from buying a phone that is not good at a very reduced price.
Also there are many free classified websites in Nigeria that bring buyers and sellers together but they don’t go as far as making such that any product that is on sale on their website is legit. It is rest on you as a buyer to protect yourself.
If you are planning to buy a new, cheap and durable mobile phone in Nigeria as a student, I will suggest you read my previous post on how Nigerian students can buy new and affordable phones without spending much.
If you are not buying a used phone from someone close to you, you should be wary of your purchase if the price of the phone is way below the market value. That might be a scam plot.
