The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon E. Arase, has mandated all State Command Commissioners of Police to dislodge local government officials operating on the highways in the guise of collecting tolls for their local government authorities.
“This order became necessary following complaints and reports of disruption of smooth flow of traffic, extortion and harassment of motorists on the highways,” Force Public Relations Officer, CP Emmanuel C.S Ojukwu, said in a statement made available to News Express.
“Henceforth any local government staff found wanting in this regard would be made to face the full weight of the law,” Ojukwu added.
