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.

According to reports, 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

The community however, after receiving the letter have begun beefing up their security measures in order to protect lives and properties.

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.
