While making his confession, Victor revealed that he had thought that the occupants of the compound had gone to work but he was spotted by a neighbor who raised an alarm.

After receiving the beating of his life, Victor confessed that it was his third operation on the house.

“Before I went to jail, I had robbed the same compound two times. When I got out of jail, I came back again to rob the compound,” he said.
