Some revenue collectors on Thursday caused a former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, to be in traffic for three hours at the Bridgehead Onitsha.
Narrating his experience to journalists on Thursday at his residence in Onitsha, Obi described the situation as horrible.
Obi said, “I was passing through the Bridgehead in the morning where I experienced over three hours delay in traffic.
“Out of curiosity, I came down from my vehicle only to behold different groups extorting money from the people.
“Apart from causing delays in traffic, they constitute a menace to the travelling public, businesses and people’s sources of livelihood, not mentioning the countless hours lost at such traffic hotspots.”
He enjoined the state government to flush out all illegal groups using the name of the government to cause problems to people at a time Nigerians were passing through tough times.
He added, “Aside causing more hardship to the road users, these extortionists pose a serious security threat to society.”
