Fear has gripped residents of Mpape Phase 2, a community near the highbrow Maitama District, Abuja, following the receipt of a letter purportedly written by armed robbers notifying them of an impending attack, PUNCH reports.

Although the proposed date for the attack was not specified, those behind the letter advised residents to keep at least N100,000 or be prepared to face dire consequences.

A community leader, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said copies of the letter littered the streets.

He said, “Around 1.30am we heard a whistle by our night guard, he raised the alarm. All of us came out and we saw the letters on the streets.

“Those who didn’t come out at that time also saw the letter when they eventually did. We gathered to compare the contents and it was the same. We were told to keep N100, 000 for them that they would be coming soon.

“Some policemen came to the area for inspection. We have restored to prayer as it is and we hope the government will come to our rescue. We are living in fear.”

Already, Police authorities have asked residents not to panic but should only report suspicious movements at all times.
