Frustrated for not meeting their victim at home, suspected robbers left a note threatening to come back.
The incident happened at Grace Estate, in Iyesi area of Ado Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State, after the robbers broke into a three-bedroom apartment when the occupants were away from home.
According to reports, the robbers were said to have made attempt to enter the apartment through the main entrance to the building, but they could not open the main door. It was said that the robbers broke into the building through the ceiling of an adjoining flat and carted away one of the electronic gadgets in the house.
They were also said to have made attempt to break into the rooms, but the doors were too strong for them to unlock or vandalise. Apparently frustrated over their not too successful operation caused by the absence of occupants of the building, the hoodlums were said to have left a note promising to return at no given date.
The note sighted by our correspondent reads: ‘’We are coming back o !!! Goodluck.’’ The incident was reported to the Obasanjo Farm Police Division, Ota. It was learnt that policemen from the division visited the scene, while the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of the station had directed his men to embark on constant patrol and surveillance of the community to keep the gang in check.
Speaking with The Nation, the owner of the building, Dare Ogunyombo explained that he was away from home for some days with his family, when the gang visited his residence.
He said: ‘’the suspected robbers visited my residence while I was away from home with my wife and children. They ransacked the house and scattered everywhere.
I noticed that they fruitlessly tried to force their way into my apartment through the main door to the building. They however broke the ceiling of the next flat and entered my apartment through the roof, while they carted away a satellite television decoder in the living room.
They also made attempt to enter my room but the door was too strong for them to unlock or break. I guess they were in a hurry to rob and because they were frustrated, they left a note on the table threatening to come back for me and my family.’’
