CITIZENS COMPASS– PALPABLE fear has enveloped some communities in the Yewa-North Local Government Area of Ogun State as suspected killer herdsmen have written them over planned attacks to be carried out in the areas.
Companies, churches and individuals have become jittery following the proposed attacks by the killer herdsmen.
affected areas were Asa, Agbon, Ibeku, and Oja-Odan.
The latter was reportedly written on Saturday.
The herdsmen, in the letter written in English and Hausa Languages, informed the residents of their intention of attacking the communities through the notice letter reportedly pasted on the walls in some strategic places within the communities.
The herdsmen told the leaders of the communities to expect their visitation to their homes between December and January.
The notice reads, “Attention! Attention!! Attention!! to all following communities; Asa, Agbon, lbeku, Oja-odan, and its environs.
“You think you can send away our people from the land they bought in Nigeria, our father’s land, you kill our people, you kill their cows, you take over all their properties, you think you can go scot-free. It’s high time we come for revenge.
All the above mention communities leaders should prepare for the war between December and January. We are coming to take back our father’s property.”
When contacted the state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi confirmed the development.
Oyeyemi said he had seen the letter, as he assured the concerned communities of the command’s commitment to unravel those behind the hideous act.
“Well, I saw the letter purportedly written by a baseless group. We believe it is a baseless group that wrote the letter. We are not losing any sleep because no information is too small to take note of.
We are not neglecting it. We are working on it to unravel those behind it,” he said.
