No fewer than 11 members of the newly formed Rivers State Task Force on Illegal Trading, Motor Parks and Mechanic Workplaces have been sacked for collecting bribe from members of the public around Choba area in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.
The new Coordinator of the task force, DSP Felix Nwadibe (rtd), made this known in Port Harcourt, recently, stating that they were sacked based on credible reports, despite several warnings before the commencement of the new exercise.
He also said the sacking would serve as a deterrent to any members of the task force who may want to indulge in such act.
He expressed satisfaction on the level of performance of the task force members so far, pointing to the achievements recorded on the smooth movement on the roads without traffic gridlock and compliance by traders and motorists.
Nwadibe further called on the general public to report any member of the task force to the authority, if found wanting.
