Eiterebhe, who has been a security expert for over 30 years, however, gave some top security tips for the festive season break.His words: “If you have a tap in your compound at home, do not go out for any reason to stop when it’s surprisingly running in the night. The hoodlums might use that as a tactic to lure you outside.

“Always try to avoid constructive breaking into your house. At every time, ensure that the door is locked yourself regardless of the number of people working for you. This is because there is no successful robbery without an insider’s assistance.

“You have to be sensitive to things around you. Pay attention to everything that might be a security threat.“If you drive a car, stop displaying valuables in conspicuous places. Valuables placed in transparent areas in the car will entice criminals to trigger something unexpected.

“If you are in a traffic congestion, some hoodlums may walk up to you, asking you to roll down your car glass. Don’t argue with them, hit the car in front of you slightly. Doing this will invite attention to you and that will scare them away.”
