The current article is the third in our series on personal and residential security. Here is the link for the Part I and Part II of this series. Herein we shall highlight some issues, oversight that will pose a security risk, lapse if not factored in.
The first one is a penchant for hosting private parties, events, reception inside one's premises. This is quite common in Nigeria. The unprecedented insecurity situation in Nigeria calls for caution, restraint in organising "owambes" (parties) within one's premises. The snag here is that more often than not, uninvited folks will tend to gate crash into parties. The exception is where there is adequate access control and security practitioners on ground to checkmate intending gate crashers. Even when all the guests are duly invited and armed with their IV's, there is no guarantee they will not use such occasion to spy on the hosts property or acquisitions. Common sense should let us know that it is not everyone that has come to 'celebrate' with us that is truly happy with us, some may have some ulterior motive. More often than not, items and personal belongings grow wings aftermath of hosting parties, events within homes.
If you are concerned about the prospect of your personal effects disappearing sequel to hosting a party in your premises, please consider doing it in an Event Centre which are not in short supply these days.
