Suspected armed robbers have written some Lagos residents, urging them to prepare to pay Christmasdues with a date not mentioned.

Residents of Joseph Harrison Estate, Yaba  area of Lagos State, reportedly got the letter from the bandits last Wednesday, which notified them of an impending attack to collect their ‘dues’ for the festive season.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the letter was placed on a vehicle of one of the residents which 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.

Checks at the estate, on Tuesday, showed that security measures have been put in place to protect lives and property in the community.

Chairman, Community Development Association, Mr. Bolanle Akinyemi, said the estate has enjoyed some peace for a long while as it was protected by guards and police from Sabo Police Post. “We are mindful of the slum that surrounds us and we have been conscious of suspected criminals.

“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 Commissioner of Police Fatai Owoseni to deploy more men to patrol the estate regularly.
