A Thief Came To Our House, Tricked My Children To Steal by Ebenezerk2: 8:57pm On Jan 05, 2018
A thief came to our house today when he knew that nobody was in the house except my children, when he entered, he told my children that my wife sent him to bring the envelope to her, he thought we might keep money in the house, these children are below 10 years of age, he asked for my wife number, they gave it to him, as he was pretending to be calling my wife, he said "I even have it on my phone" and he was talking as if he was talking to my wife, that was when they led him into all the bed rooms, they opened our wardrobe to look for an envelope, he ransacked everywhere, he was able to steal a laptop, a bag my wife just bought yesterday with #2,000 in it, we don't know yet if he stole more than that, we always tell them to always close doors when they are in, but I don't know why they didn't close it, but I thank God, he didn't hurt them.
People have mind o, what of if he was caught? may God have mercy.

Children below ten shld really not be left alone at home. Worst comes to worst, if you have to quickly step out and there is no one to watch, lock them in with places like kitchen also locked out of their reach. Thank God they are safe

On a lighter note, this just reminds me of what mt mom uwed to recite to us when we were small..."I didn't send anybody to come and carry anything o, I didn't send anybody to come and carry you. Don't open the gate for anybody or gbomo gbomo will come and carry you"
Re: A Thief Came To Our House, Tricked My Children To Steal by Ebenezerk2: 9:23pm On Jan 05, 2018
Thanks, but it is very risky to lock children in the house incase of any emergency

Remember my growing up days...
My dad will lock us up and give a spare key to our deeper life neighbour just in case...

We will play all kinds of play till we get tired and resort to a funny waving game in which we call the attention of passers-by both old and young and wave at them wen they turn! We call it "sssss!, byee" grin...
That's how I made some of the friends I know today!!

The thief must live close or has been watching to know ur movements.I won't blame the kids just shun them seriously & they will learn from experience as they will still grow up,I understand how it is living in flats & not fully trusting some neighbours...But never ever lock the kids inside its too risky

Smart thief.

He'll meet smart killers someday, this I know.

Am just here thinking what if he was a child kidnapper or ritualistic?

OP you really should make a police report. And if you can afford it mount cameras.

It may surprise you that theif lives around your neighborhood

Reading your story now, I jumped out of the bed to go check my bag where I kept huge amount of money, cos i left my children at home alone today to go visit some of my projects on site. Thank God, the money is resting in my bag.

That's why it is always good to remind children when leaving them alone not open the door for anybody under any circumstances. Someone tried something like this in my parent's house when we were very young, before the era of mobile phones. He claimed my dad's younger one (aburo) sent him to come and take the tv and VCR for repairs. Out then maid asked if the younger one was male or female, he said male. That was where he goofed because my dad has only one younger one in that area and she's a female. As we grew older we were warned several times not to open the door for anybody we're not familiar with even if the person is claiming family. Now these thieves are getting craftier, parents have their work cut out for them in teaching their children to be more security conscious.
