Palpable tension has greeted residents of Asa, Agbon, Ibeku and Oja-Odan communities in the Yewa-North Local Government Area of Ogun State, following a letter written by suspected killer herdsmen.

It was gathered that the suspected killer herdsmen had sent the letter to the communities, intimating them of a planned reprisal attack.

A copy of the letter sighted by our correspondent on Saturday was reportedly pasted on the walls in some strategic places within the communities.

The hoodlums told the leaders of the communities to expect visitation to their homes between December and January.

The letter read, “Attention! Attention!! Attention!! to all following communities; Asa, Agbon, lbeku, Oja-odan and its environs. Do you think you can send away our people from the land they bought in Nigeria, our father’s land? You kill our people, kill their cows, take over all their properties, and you think you can go scot-free. It is 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.”

The Police Spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi confirmed the development, saying he had seen a copy of the letter.

Oyeyemi, however, allayed fears and assured the concerned communities of the command’s commitment to unravelling 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,” Oyeyemi said.
