The Ogun State Police Command says it has taken necessary steps to secure Lambe community after residents of the area received a letter purportedly from armed robbers informing them they were coming soon.
The residents woke up on Tuesday to find the short letter written in Yoruba language pasted on walls on Akin Akindele Street, Community Road and Jelili Popoola Street.
The letter, translated, reads, “You residents of this community, we greet you on your preparation. You will soon receive us your friends. If you like, inform the police or the vigilance group or OPC (members of the Oodua People’s Congress). You will only waste your lives.
“The most important thing is for you to cooperate with us by preparing to entertain us when we come. We are your friends, robbers.”
However, Spokesman for the state police command, Mr. Muyiwa Adejobi, said one of the residents of the community had contacted him on the matter.
Adejobi said, “But I told them to go and report to the divisional police officer at Ajuwon. The DPO there will take all the necessary steps.
“The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ikemefuna Okoye, is also aware of the situation and had instructed that the DPO should do all that is necessary to protect the residents.”
