The most shocking and frustrating thing that will spoil a new day that you have woken up with so an awe-inspiring mood is when you enter your car in the morning and switch on the ignition and it refused to start. You remembered you drove it the previous day and there were no issues. You then notice pieces of broken glasses on the front passenger’s seat. It now done on you that your car has being burgled.
This was exactly what the residents of Adebayo crescent, off Ago Palace way in Okota area,Lagos state woke up to see this morning 30th March,2018. Two Toyota Highlander SUVs were undressed and skinned of important components. The thieves used the cover of last night’s rain to perpetrate the evil act. One of the Toyota Highlander SUV is a new one and yet to be registered. Everything electrical was removed along with the brain box. The thieves showed expertise in the way they carefully removed everything that made the car an SUV. The back lights and head lights were removed. The work was neatly done.
According to an expert in cars, he explained that the thieves who had entered through the back rear door window after breaking it did so because the front doors has alarm systems connected to it. Last week a similar robbery had taken place on the same street with a Toyota Camry hacked. The brain box and other electrical devices were burgled.
There are stories going on that the main target is the new Toyota models with Highlander SUVs on top of the list as that is what is trending in the auto market now. A lot of the streets in Ago used to have gates at both ends for security reasons until late last year that they were removed which made them porous for easy escape.
Security is becoming an issue as it is becoming difficult for cars to be parked on the streets which used to be safer with two gates. One of the burgled cars was parked inside the compound but yet it was touched.
We all have to be security conscious.
