Armed robbers write Ogun residents, warn them to keep Christmas money, gift at home

According to reports, the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, CP, Ahmed Iliyasu, has called on residents of Anglican Road, Ilupewo community in Ado-Odo-Otta Local Government Area of the state to remain calm after they reportedly received a letter from suspected armed robbers of an impending visit.

The robbers posted the letters on gates and doors informing residents of the boundary community between Lagos and Ogun States, to keep Christmas gifts for them as they would be visiting anytime soon.

Following the development, the residents have been living in fear, while some have deserted their homes.

According to reports, the residents, Wednesday, woke up to discover several of such letters posted to their doorposts, telling them that the robbers were coming for the operation because of the coming Christmas and New Year festivities.

The letter which had the following incomplete phone numbers – 0702288949, 080449930 – stressed that they (robbers) didn’t want excuses from residents over non-availability of money at home.

The said letter reportedly typed in Yoruba language, introduced the robbers as ‘Strong men of the road that own the night,’ urging the recipients to ensure they keep money at home always, even as they vowed to deal mercilessly with any resident who claims he does not have money as advanced notice has been given to prepare them.

But the CP, in a statement on Thursday, assured the residents that the police was working effortlessly to stop the planned robbery.

He stated that about 60 houses on Anglican Road had the letters posted on their doorposts and that the residents reported the matter at the Sango Police Station.

He, however, called on the residents to remain calm as the security operatives were up to task in dealing with the criminals.

“We are on top of the situation and security has been beefed up in the community,” the CP stated.
