What To Do When Robbers Want To Take Your Car?

What Do You Do When Thieves Want To Collect Your Car?

Yesterday right in front of me not too far from my crib,thieves collected a guy's car and he started struggling with them. He even broke the windscreen of his car himself just for these guys to go without the car. the thieves were angry and shot him on the head. Now,my question is this what's the worth of a car for you to loose your life? please in the name of God, when these boys who are already high on whatever accost you,leave whatever you

Do you have experience with gun laws in Nigeria?

Each individual situation is different and the reaction of course will be different.

But it sounds like we need to copy Texas "Castle Doctrine" law in Nigeria.

We can't continue to cower and just hand over our keys and expect them to stop their acts of evilness.

My own take on this is to calmly hand over the car keys and co-operate fully. U will get whatever u've lost again and even a better one. I think its idiocy to attempt to challenge robbers with gun(s). the guy in question,when he was shot,didn't he leave the car? how can u equate a car with a man's life!!!Everybody go die but nor fuckup die,d kind one wey people go hear dem go say d guy fuckup.

Heh yaaaa,its a pity. To b 4 worned is 2 b 4 armd, my advice 2 car owners is 2 get a car tracking device instald in dea car(s) by us.if stolen or snached, we/he or she wil monitor,control stop and recover d car with his or her phone or computer.this can b don frm any where in the world.had it been he hv don dat,he wil just go the nearest cafe & wach his car & d area de are & stop d car.its as easy as dat. Pls lets learn frm other. 4 more info the car tracking system/device. Cal 08062232943.or fiboffer@yahoo.com PREVENTION IS BETER THAN CURE. Anywhere in nigeria we ar at ur service.

Just leave the car and comply with their demands. The remote controlled self destruct button in your house should blow up the car after 30 minutes

Unless the car in question was a Rolls Royce,Bentley Mulsanne or Maybach Excelero. . .what your friend did was dumb! I just hope all that wasn't for a Toyota or Honda coz that would be really embarrassing to think about. If Nigeria was a country were one has a large array of legitimate guns to choose from both for home and car protection, then all these would come down to a bare minimum. Who will dare stop your car and ask you to roll down the window when over half the drivers are packing pistols and semi-automatics? Most legitimate guns people own in this country are double barrel hunting shotguns and that's not something you can carry every where you go.

I was attacked by six armed guys last year january at the entrance gate of the estate where I live.They told me to get down from the car and lie face down on the tarmac and I complied.My two mobile phones,wedding ring and my new honda accord were taken away without any struggle.After reporting at the police station,I got home late at night to embrace my wifey and kid and even prayed to God that I am alive and well cos you can be alive with hot leads in your body.We attended sunday service the following morning and by the time I was about to eat lunch after church,my phone rang and police informed me that the car was found abandoned at the scene of another robbery.It is not worth it struggling with these guys at all.I have sold even the car and bought other ones cos am not dead.When there is life,there will definitely be hope, Material things are not worth dying for.A car could get accident,burned,smashed and life continues,so why fight robbers,

People, i'm in Asaba, my 190 was snatched last year, i co-operated with the buggers and we found the car 3 days later. This year my end of discussion was snatched, they took me for a ride, dumped me on the express, half Unclad i didn't panic, cos of the tracker. Believe it or not d contraption didn't work. It accepted my call, but rejected the password. But i lived. The used my phone to call his girlfriend in Auchi, so we got my call records from MTN, traced his girl and parents (with no help from the police) we have identified and arrested his parents and sister, who tried to cover him, but he is on the run.

Bottomline is, i survived and i'll buy a Murano thru Nairaland autos in January, cos the offers are unbelievable. We have no security in Naija but ourselves and God. The police charge you for picking up suspects, they even ask you for extra money if you want suspects killed. One suspect was killed by them, because he didn't co-operate, i beleive he worked for their oga who they didn't want exposed. The best assurance is comprehensive insurance from a reliable insurance company, , let them worry. There's a thin line between heroism and stuupidity, if the sh*t works, u a hero, if it fails everyone asks how you could have been so silly. Now you choose ,

wow i just come across this on here and it's so interesting, what will you do is thieves what's to collect you car? it's a big question i guess, it happened to me just about 5 days ago in ketu, when i went to see my producer, they came in and burst in to 3 shops at a time, while i was in the bar with the guy i went there to see, the fellow co victim were a pharmaceutical shop and the others were the bar that am into and a supper market, who so ever that witness will know that this guys are really mean, we all ran inside the shop and 3 guys came i for us, they all on guns and the collected everything on everyone inside the shop including me, i was wearing an expensive chain, that wort about 80k, they collected it and the money on me, and later they said i should let go on my car, i followed them and gave them the keys, i started the car for them myself and they leave with it, i know it has security so i could bother about the car, so they left, when they get to a setting point the car went off and they ran from there, but i know it that i will see the car in a close place, so i take a bike cause if we should invite our naija police you definitely know what they will do, they will either detained you as a suspect that to investigate the crime, so i left for home, since then have been thanking god for my life for not allowing them to take my life instead of the car. i know i can achieve more than that even if they go with it, so you can learn from this and thanks god for me also. cute nature, a.k.a control master. check my video out on every naija tv stations and on cable, them wan kill me before my money come. god no go gree for them. one love.

i will not advise anyone stand up against any guy from the under world.Just like the other day,right in front of my close,a guy was shot just because he refused to hand over his Nokia 3310 phone, I can tell you the true,the guy bleed to death. The question for everyone is this, can nokia 3310 return a life back from the grave? or can a man's life yield better things than a Nokia Phone after being rubbed?

Keep Your Car From Becoming A Shopping Spree For Thieves

According to the National Crime Prevention Council, it takes a professional car thief less than 30 seconds to break a window, unlock the door and steal anything that’s inside. Property theft from cars is mostly a crime of opportunity. Because of an increase in theft from cars, the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department sent these tips to residents and they’re useful regardless where you live:

Keep Your Valuables Out of Sight Never leave cell phones, briefcases, suitcases, or electronic devices (walkmans, palm pilots, laptop computers, etc.) in your car in plain view. Take these items with you, or secure them—all the time, every time.

Use Your Trunk If your car has a trunk, use it. Put valuables in there or in a locked glove compartment. Hiding items under seats is better than leaving them in plain view.

Don’t Tempt Thieves with New Purchases Anytime you’re shopping, place packages in the trunk, not on the passenger seats or floors.

Remove Your Radio Faceplate If you can unfasten your sound system and take it with you, or lock it in your trunk, do so. And don’t forget to do the same with your CDs and tapes, GPS or other electronic equipment.

Lock It Up Also, keep your car doors and windows locked—all the time!

Remember: “Outta sight, outta mind”—if thieves can’t see your valuables, they’re less likely to waste their time targeting your auto. Take the time to secure your valuables; it makes a difference. Also consider installing an alarm. Only one in four cars is equipped with a security system, reports the New York Daily News, so most thieves will be deterred by that blinking red light and search instead for cars that don’t scream for attention.

Beware!!!!!

Hey,

No matter how costly the car or whatever is,

just let it go because, the same way in which

you manage to get that thing, you will still get

it again instead of losing your precious life for

what worth nothing.

Well my advice is this, when ever you r attacked by robbers {armed} stay calm, deliver every every and dont try to fight us, cos we {the robbers} could be deadly when attacked. That is that.

Wait o! Did i say we? well its not wat u fink.

why on earth would a sane person struggle with an armed rubber?

it is not worth the stress, because these people will kill u and still take away ur things.

so u can see it's really not worth it.

let them go with whatever they asked u for and u will most definitely replace these things even with better ones.
