Dare devil robbers in Ogun state sent a letter to Lambe residents in the state asking them for a warm welcome when they strike in their community in the coming days.
The robbers who described themselves as friends of the community said in the letter written in Yoruba language and pasted on many walls on Akin Akindele, Community Road and Jelili Popoola Streets, that they are coming ‘very soon’ and are not afraid of the police or other security agencies.
“If you like, inform the police or your security men or OPC, you will just lose your lives,” they warned.
Describing themselves as friends of the residents in Lambe community, the robbers called on them to get ready for their arrival and cooperate with them.
“You residents of this area be prepared to receive your friends very soon. If you like, inform the police or your security men or OPC, you will just lose your lives. What is important is to cooperate with us and to get ready to give us a warm welcome,” the robbers said in the short letter.
The letter ends with these words: “We your friends, robbers”.
A resident who pleaded anonymity described Lambe as ‘the playground of armed robbers.’
“Lambe has become the play ground of armed robbers. Incessant robbery attacks have forced landlords to flee the area and are now tenants in other places,” he said.
Another resident said her family will relocate from the community this week. She added that the residents are worried because of the lack of security in the country.
She revealed that none of the residents wants to talk about it because “the robbers might be living among us.”
“ I have warned my husband to stay away from this matter because you do not know who is who in the area, “she said.
