The Twitter user wrote: “That was how I entered my house today o and I found a woman inside my house. She had packed my wigs and all my gold, was about to start checking my bags when I entered. Thank God my neighbor was coming behind me, I’m pretty sure she’d have attacked me.”

In a subsequent post, Noor explained that Akilapa was found with so many keys in her possession after a curious netizen asked how she gained access.
