“Sit tight, we just want to rob you”

Violent robbers in Lagos targeting rich houses during the coronavirus lockdown have written a letter (above) to residents warning they’re on their way.

In the formal letter, the robbers – calling themselves the 100 Million Boys of Nigeria Surulere – threaten that residents should comply or risk death. 

The chairman of the 100 Million Boys of Nigeria Surulere writes that residents should not warn the police, or else “it will be bloody for everyone”. The letter ends: “Just give us want we are coming for and we go in peace. Thanks in anticipation.”
