Residents in some streets in the Palmgroove area of Lagos
are currently living in fear after receiving a letter from
armed robbers who said they are coming soon to raid them.
(copy of the purported letter below). The letter which was
sent to five different streets on Saturday September 6th,
reads in part;
“Beware of the coming! Be on the look out in this area.
Property owners are coming anytime from now. The gate
men you have are not our problem. Our problem is how
many resources do you have for us? August visitor must
visit whether you like it or not. So expect August visitor
when you did not expect. Surely August visitor shall visit
just like the second coming of Jesus. It is turn by turn.
“In the last line of the letter which is not clear, the armed
robbers listed names of the street they plan to attack. They
are Oseni street, Nkanna street, Odogbolu street, Ibiwoye
Oba and Bode Thomas street.
Some residents in the area immediately contacted police
and they sent some of their men to guard the streets for a
few hours yesterday. The residents say they are so scared.
