If you cooperate we will not kill but if you fail to cooperate blood will flow by.”

The chairman of the community, Bolanle Akinyemi confirmed the letter and added that the residents were yet to decipher the motive behind the letter.

The community chairman said “before the letter was brought to the estate, we enjoyed peace because we engaged guards and policemen from Sabo division and we are also mindful of the slum that surrounded us and we have been conscious.”
