Panic as suspected bandits send threat letter to Ogun communities
Residents of Ishara and Ogere in Ikenne and Remo-North Local Government Areas of Ogun State have been thrown into panic following the threat of attack by suspected bandits
Residents said they received a letter purportedly written by bandits who threatened to attack the communities.
"I was in a prayer group yesterday when we were told that bandits wrote a letter of planned attack to Ogere and Ishara communities in Ogun state," a resident said.
A principal in Ishara was reported to have confirmed that the letter was written to the two communities.
Spokesperson of the State Police Command, SP, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the development, described the letter as mischievous.
"We are investigating the so-called letter with a view of getting who wrote it arrested because some people will just sit down and think of ways of causing unnecessary panic in the mind of the people. We are not leaving any stone unturned in arresting the people behind the dangerous letter," the PPRO stated.
When asked if he sighted the letter, Oyeyemi said, “We saw a composed letter, we discovered that a mischief maker wrote it. Aside from that, we are not in any way relaxing on operational activities across the state so with or without any letter, we ensure that we put a very strong security arrangement on ground to ward off any form of a situation from any angle. We are on ground."
