Bandits terrorising residents of Wase Local Government Area of Plateau State, have served ten communities in the council a 5-day quit notice, within which to relocate or face dire consequences.
Some of the affected communities include Sabon Zama, Gindin Dutse, Anguwan Tsohon Soldier, Anguwan Yuhana and Anguwan Mangu.
According to newsmen, the bandits, who have been terrorising the council and other neighbouring local government areas, physically served the notice on Sunday.
A resident of one of the communities, who craved anonymity, disclosed that the bandits visited some of the communities over the weekend to issue the ultimatum and threatened to kill anyone who disobeyed the order.
Newsmen report that residents of the affected villages and communities have started leaving their homes before the ultimatum elapses on Thursday.
Authorities in the State including the Police have not issued any statement on the development.
Spokesperson of the State Police Command, DSP Alfred Alabo could not be reached on phone to confirm the report.
