Armed robbers have sent letters to banks in Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State notifying them of a planned visit to the community.
The police, army and other security agents in the state were said to have been mobilised to the town to repel the imminent attack.
The Caretaker Committee Chairman of Afikpo North LGA, Mrs Amuche Otunta, said there is a security threat in her local government area.
A youth leader in the area, Eze Egwu, said the robbers wrote to the community.
He noted that policemen and soldiers had taken over the area.
When asked if community youths had formed a vigilance group to protect the area, Egwu said, “How can you be waiting for a well armed man with sticks in the night or day in the name of security? We cannot risk our lives; it is only God that secures a city.”
