My Apartment Was Robbed In A Very Mysterious Way! by Mike4S: 6:41pm On Dec 26, 2019
I came back from the the church on Sunday only to see my apartment rummaged. My gas cylinder that I just filled, my new electric iron that is still intact in the packet, my new stainless vacuum cup, aso ebi 2 each 6 yards and Polish and brush were all carted away.

What really surprised me is my key being intact and no sign of break and enter from any part of the apartment.

Air of mystery still surrounds how my apartment was robbed.

I want to go and just drop statement with the police. Hope that one will be welcomed? Guys I need your contributions. I just packed in there. It's somewhere opposite Lagos Business School along Lekki Epe express way

If there is no break in, then someone had duplicated your key.Did you break up with any lady recently?

The fact still remains someone had the key to your apartment, just do your self a favour change the key engine , get a new set of keys.

could be the previous person who lived there who still had the keys....could be a neighbor.... could be a close person who had access to your keys.

btw: nobody heard or saw anything?! was the door still locked when you returned?!

When you move into an apartment new or old...

Rule No. 1 Change the locks of the main door!
Rule No. 2 Locate the nearest apiam way...
Rule No. 3 Make friends with the nearest aboki or petty traders around, they will tell you the secret of the area
Rule No. 4 Never move into a neighborhood that you become a spotlight, especially having the biggest and best ride. It easily gives you away.

Lol. There's an uncle of mine, very educated and exposed. Each time I went to visit him, those thugs in his street will hail him while passing by, me will be wondering what's this man relationship with this smelling thugs, he will check his pocket and give them something at the end of the day. So, one day, i asked him what's his relationship with the thugs, he told me that they have their great usefulness that if anything wants to happen, they fit alert you. He owns a phone shop then, na so one day, the thugs hinted him about the planned burgle of his shop that night, that's how he got two night guards from another street to help him keep watch that night. The burglars came truthfully that night and they were caught. Later when I entered street too, I realized thugs dey get information for hand.

1. Someone has a spare key before you came- Change ur locks.
2. Someone has a master key, upgrade to more than one locking systems.
3. Someone knows how to pick locks, Upgrade into alarms.
4. Someone has a new appearing & disappearing jazz (nollywood style) - use "come and don't go" jazz.

Police will not get your items back and they'll even charge you for the statement.... Sad but it's always good and advisable to report such things to the police cause it doesn't take time before you start hearing stuff like "... but did you report?"

I'm 85/ sure it's an inside job. Might be the landlord, a co-tenant, a close friend or contracted to some guys in the hood.
No need to report to police
Change keys, refix burglary, associate with boys...

Peace

That area is a hotspot for breaking and entering. Especially University view estate and grand melia hotel road. Just go to Ajiwe and make a statement or better still complain to the estate association.

Sundays are usually quiet because most people go to church and that is when burglars like breaking into houses to rob,that has been the case around where I stay. So for my house we devised this useful tips and it has been helpful. Before we leave for church,we turn on the radio and increase the volume, making it look like someone is home, of course any burglar who hears the radio blasting would assume we are home. If you don't have light, buy this battery operated radio,it serves the same purpose.

Rule number 1 change the locks of all major entrances before you pack in. I will advise you dont suspect anybody without tangible proof, count your losses and move on.
All it takes for a blacksmith to replicate your key, is just the sample. This guys can press your key against a bar of soap, and thats all.

Rule 2, don't fail to regard the street hoodlums, I normally buy plenty booze and smoke occasionally for the area boys for my hood, my wife frowns at it. I reminded her that a day will come when she will begin to appreciate their usefulness. the street code, even thief go loyal die, if you know what to do.

And the day did come, my son was ill so she left for hospital late, while she was returning around 11pm, she did a bad reverse in a lonely road, and ended up in a gutter. She was scared to the teeth, small time some boys just fall out, she overhead saying na boss wife be this, they helped her push the car out and even gave her some cover. Now even she don dey follow dash them money.
