The Governor also directed the Area Commander to move all illegally impounded vehicles at the two locations to Area Command police station at Aba, where owners of the illegally impounded vehicles will go for identification and collection of their vehicles at no cost.
Commercial vehicle operators loading along major roads at Aba and Umuahia, especially those at Osisioma junction, are advised to immediately relocate to government approved motor parks. Henceforth, defaulters will be made to face the law.
Going forward, all those engaged in any form of illegal extortion of money from motorists and residents at Aba and Umuahia will have themselves to blame when caught. Any staff or officer of the local or state government found collaborating with the extortionists will be dealt with according to the law.
Abians and residents are advised to be vigilant and report suspected fake revenue agents to the nearest police station.
