A group of suspected armed robbers have written a very threatening letter to residents of Joseph Harrison Estate, in the Yaba area of Lagos State urging them to be ready to pay their season’s dues.
The residents got the letter from the bandits on Wednesday notifying them of their impending attack to collect their “dues” for the festive season on a date not mentioned.
The letter was placed on the vehicle of one of the residents and was discovered in the morning when he was about to wash his car. It reads:
We are coming this week to collect our dues and to visit you tenants and landlords of Joseph Harrison Street in the week. If you like go and bring police or soldiers, we are coming to perform our duties. If you cooperate, we will not kill, but if you fail to cooperate, blood will flow.
Meanwhile, sterner security measures have been put in place to protect lives and properties in the community, more guards have been engaged and the matter reported to the Sabo Police Division.
Concerned residents have also urged the commissioner of police, Fatai Owoseni to deploy more men to patrol the estate regularly.
