Anambra CP Orders Immediate, Strict Enforcement Toll Ban
The Commissioner Police in Anambra, Mr Echeng Echeng has directed immediate enforcement of the suspension of all toll collections in the state.
Echeng gave the order at a meeting with Heads of Tactical Units, Divisional Police Officers and Heads of Departments across the Command in Awka on Sunday.
Gov. Chukwuma Soludo had in his inaugural address on Thursday suspended all tolls and placed a ban on illegal collections on the roads and at the motor parks across the state.
Soludo said all existing revenue collection contracts stood revoked until a new template that would address leakages would be released in a month’s time.
Echeng told the officers to ensure strictly that there was no touting and activities of self-acclaimed revenue collectors in the State.
“All unscrupulous elements that engage in touting and other unlawful acts are warned to desist forthwith as the Command under my watch in collaboration with heads of sister agencies have deployed personnel across.
“We shall arrest and bring to justice anyone caught flouting this order.
“We reaffirm the commitment of the Command towards crime prevention, restoration of law and order and enjoin law abiding residents of the State to be vigilant and security conscious at all times.
“You are encouraged to report all suspicious movements to the Police or, in case of any emergencies, to call 112 or 07039194332 for immediate response,” he said.
