It reads: “We are coming this week to collect our dues and to visit you tenants and landlords of Joseph Harrison Street in the week, If you like go and bring police or Soja, we are coming to perform our duties.

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

NAN noted on Thursday that sterner security measures had been put in place to protect lives and property on the estate.

The Chairman of the community development association of the area, Mr. Bolanle Akinyemi, said the estate had enjoyed some peace for long, as it was protected by guards and the police from the Sabo Police Post.

“We are also mindful of the slum that surrounds us and we have been conscious of suspected criminals. No one has received such a letter before, but there was a case in 2013 when a company in the estate was robbed,” he said.

The chairman added that they had reported the threat to the Sabo Police Division and more guards had been engaged on the estate.

Concerned residents urged the Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, to increase police presence on the estate.
