Residents of a community in Osun State have been thrown into panic after they got a letter from armed robbers intimating them of their visit.
Total Media reports that the letter was written in Yoruba language and circulated in the area by unknown people, clearly telling the residents to be prepared for the visit as the robbers would not entertain any excuse of lack of money.
It was gathered that the letter has caused a lot of anxiety and fear with many of the residents relocating from the area.
A landlord in the community who spoke on the receipt of the letter hinted that some people had to relocate for fear of being attacked by the robbers.
The spokesperson of Kelebe Landlords Association, Hakeem Bolarinwa, told journalists that the warning was real and called on police and other security agencies in the state to set up necessary security measures that would ensure the safety of residents of the area.
However, the Commissioner of Police in the state, CP Fimihan Adeoye, has told the people to discountenance the letter, assuring them that security would be tightened in the area as policemen would be deployed there to provide a 24-hour security.
