Armed robbers numbering five yesterday invaded the Ilupeju area, Ofatedo community in Egbedore Local Government Area, Osun State, a week after sending a threat to residents.


The bandits wrote a threat letter to the community last week demanding N20 million from the residents and also vowed to kill security men that attempt to waylay them.


The Nation gathered from residents that the armed bandit attacked the community around 1:30a.m. They first attacked a poultry farm after they shot the night guard several times, but he escaped.


The bandits forcefully enter another factory in the area before they entered into residential buildings and robbed residents of their valuables.


The residents confirmed that the bandits left the community around 5a.m.


One of the night guards in the area named Segun told our correspondent: “They came to our community around 1a.m. I was on duty. The bandits were looking for money. Unfortunately, they could not get anything where I am securing. They attacked me with a machete.”


Similarly, a resident, who pleaded anonymity, said: “I was tied and locked up in the toilet. After I freed myself and left the toilet, I was hearing gunshots even till around 5a.m. The robbers were five in number. Two of them carried guns. Only one of them did not wear a mask.”


When spokesperson of the state police command, Yemisi Opalola, was contacted, she said she was yet to be briefed on the incident.


Similarly, the spokesperson of Nigeria Security Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Osun Command, Mr. Daniel Adigun, was contacted, but he said he was not aware of the incident.
