The Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, has banned all traffic agents and task forces in the state.
The state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, confirmed this to our correspondent at the Government House in Owerri, on Thursday.
Our correspondent gathered that the task force team, which operates from Heroes’ Square, still ask people to pay a fine as much as N27,000 when arrested.
But the information commissioner, who described the task force as “illegal”, said the state government would sanction its personnel.
Emelumba said, “The governor has since banned all traffic agents and task forces in line with the desire of the people.”
