Some suspected armed robbers have written some Lagos residents urging them to prepare to pay season’s dues to them on a date not mentioned. Residents of Joseph Harrison Estate, Yaba area of Lagos State got the letter from the bandits on Wednesday notifying them of their impending attack to collect their “dues” for the festive season.

NAN gathered that 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. ”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,” the letter said. NAN check at the estate on Tuesday revealed that sterner security measures have been put in place to protect lives and properties in the community.

Mr Bolanle Akinyemi, Chairman, Community Development Association said the estate had enjoyed some peace for a long while as it was protected by guards and the police from Sabo Police Post. ”We are also mindful of the slum that surrounds us and we have been conscious of suspected criminals,” he said. ”No one has received such letter before, but there was a case in 2013 when a company in the estate was robbed,” he said.

The chairman said they have reported the threat to Sabo Police Division and more guards have been engaged at the estate. Concerned residents urged the commissioner of police, Fatai Owoseni to deploy more men to patrol the estate regularly.

  1. I think we should all be security conscious during and after this season but most importantly may God protection be upon our households.


  2. Do they think that Christmas is for lazy idiots. They better think of what to do with their lives instead of terrorism innocent hardworking people. God will surely protect us from there powers.
    I beg the affected community and its neighborhood not to treat the letter with levity but with seriousness and the police should wake up


  3. Individual and collectively we need to be security conscious
    And also remember our overall security comes only from the Lord Almighty.
