Recently there have been news of armed men attacking people on the highways and even in thier homes.
In view of this, it is important for individuals to know what to do at what time in order to prevent attacks from the armed men.
Security analyst, Adam Bonah, has revealed that one of the ways to stay alive during a robbery incident is to avoid having an eye contact with the suspected robbers during their operation.
According to Adam Bonah, it is rather advisable to steal glances at the person attacking you instead of staring at them.
“Assuming you are in your home and armed robbers attack you, don’t give them eye contact. When you give them eye contact, the first thing that comes to mind is that either you are trying to see whether you know them or identify them,” he said.
In a report filed by Joy News, the security analyst stated that the chances that these armed men are going to kill you will be high because they will think you are trying to identify them.
He also stated that it is not advisable to attempt negotiating with them as whatever they require should be given out without hesitation.
His advice comes on the back of recent crimes committed in connection with politicians.
He noted that these robbers think these politicians are carrying money with them as the December polls is just approaching.
He however, advised that people carry less money around and are mindful of the routes they take to get to their homes as they can be followed by criminals who might be trailing them.
