Residents of Ifelagba Community in Oyo State have been thrown into panic after a threat letter from armed robbers was received by the community.
The letter was reportedly sent to the community on Friday evening, written in Yoruba language. Ifelagba is located in Ido Local Government Area of Oyo State.
The robbers stated that they were ready to overpower the vigilantes in the area that had made robbery operations difficult for them, while telling the residents to prepare for their monies and properties to be taken away from them.
Translated to English, the letter reads in part, “We’re coming to collect our rights and money in your houses.
“We will use all our power and all our strength to fight the vigilantes because of all their wicked acts and how they have stopped us all these years.
“We are armed robbers and we will confess everything to you this month. Be prepared.”
Efforts to reach the Oyo State Police Command for their reaction as of the time of filing this report proved abortive, as the force spokesperson in the state, Adewale Osifeso, did not respond to calls or text messages sent to his phone.
