The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Kayode Aderanti, on Thursday said he had deployed policemen and resources in Ikotun-Igando area over the alleged robbers’ threat to the community.
The CP was reacting to a letter purportedly sent to residents around College Bus Stop, Ikotun Road, Igando-Lagos, that they would come and attack them. The robbers had told the residents in the letter to prepare for their arrival and make ready their christmas gifts
“Within the past 24 hours, what we are doing in that area is unprecedented. I have deployed men and resources to that area.
“We have been able to stop that rumour, to me it is a rumour,” Aderanti said.
He urged the residents of the area to go about their daily activities and also solicited for any information that may assist the police investigation on the alleged letter.
