Oct 27, 2014 – Armed Robbers Send Christmas Robbery Intention Letters To Lagos Residents
Armed robbers have dared some residents of Lagos state with a threatening robbery intention letter.
Residents of Pako, Irepodun, Igando, Ikotun Road, College bus stop and Onimaba are currently living in fear after a letter purportedly written by robbers circulated their streets.
The letter typed in A4 paper size circulated the streets this past Thursday.
The letter reads, “Be prepared, be prepared, be prepared. Our dues must be paid this festive season. Nobody can stop us as we can strike at any time. Only enough money can save your life.
“To be forewarned is to be fore-harmed. We have warned you in this area, and if you have ears, you ought to hear.”
Landlords in the affected areas have called the police to come to their rescue.
“On Thursday morning, around 4.30am when people normally start to go to work, we noticed the papers scattered on our streets. Some unknown persons, no doubt, had dumped the letter overnight in the area.
“We have about 18 streets in the area. When we saw it, we called on our CDA chairman, Alhaji Sarumi, who in turn called on the police at Igando.” – said a Landlord in the area.
