The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon E. Arase has mandated all state command Commissioners of Police (CPs) to dislodge local government officials operating on the highways in the guise of collecting tolls for their local government authorities.

In a statement released by CP Emmanuel Ojukwu, the Force Public Relations Officer at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, the order by Arase ‘became necessary following complaints and reports of disruption of smooth flow of traffic, extortion and harassment of motorists on the highways.’

“Henceforth any local government staff found wanting in this regard would be made to face the full weight of the law,” the order read.
