RESIDENTS of Onibueja, a community in Egbedore Local Government of the State of Osun in the early hour of yesterday were thrown into panic following a purported notice from suspected armed robbers who threatened to lay siege to the area.

The suspected armed robbers reportedly pasted some manuscripts on the pole and buildings in some strategic area of the community to notify residents of the area of their plan to rob them.

OSUN DEFENDER gathered that the papers were pasted on four different streets in the area which includes; Baba Kekere Alabi Street and Oba Adedapo Aderemi Way. 

The armed robbers in the note written in Yoruba language alerted residents of the area to be prepared, saying they were coming to strike before the end of October.

Confirming the development, the Community Head of Onibueja, Chief Najeemdeen Alabi, told OSUN DEFENDER that it is true the message was sent by some people who are yet to be identified.

Alabi said he had reported the matter to the police and the community has also swung into action to take necessary steps.

He called on the State Government and the Commissioner of Police to take swift action in preventing the planned armed robbery attack.
