    Basket-mouth makes us laugh and forget our sorrows. Why would anyone want to rob him?

      I didn’t know robberies didnt start until social media. Nigerians and victim blaming choked as “advice” are like rice and stew

    It’s unfortunate the robbery occurred but of course no one was hurt because it’s a bit obvious this was done by someone who is close to the family and has been to that house severally; to know about the cctv, where it was and to get it all disconnected without a hitch. That was fast! I can’t even rule that out. Anyways, we shld also be careful whom we let into our homes. Not everyone smiling at you is a true friend. Especially in this Buhari era; ppl are looking for fast and sharp ways to survive the recession.

      My dear u have a point.. But the list is long. If the house was recently built… Then every single labourer who worked there has an idea of the in and out of the house… From brick layers, to carpenters, to electrians, and the people who installed the so called CCTV. As a civil engineer this became a recent source of concern for me. You have these same fearful area boys working with u on a building project, even when it gets to the point of adding the finishes and u have doors and all installed…these guys must have already gotten a good picture in their heads of where everything is! They work on the site on a daily basis. Even if the house was bought, then the CCTV Guys, painters, electricians, plumbers are still suspects. I can literally draw d plan of houses I have worked on in the last 2years with approximate dimensions from my head. And I am sure the labourers can too… Its just crazy. I think for the CCtV thing if there’s away of cconnecting the stuff to the internet so that videos are uploaded to an online account as they are recorded, that might help.
