Anambra State Commissioner for Information, Sir Paul Nwosu says the Anambra State Government’s intensified war against touts in the State is aimed at restoring freedom to motorists and other commuters.
Speaking on the backdrop of the recent arrest of some hoodlums in Onitsha Metropolis who nefariously branded a Mercedes car in the mode of the Anambra Internal Revenue Service for purposes of harassing and extorting money from drivers Sir Paul said Governor Chukwuma Soludo’s meeting with transporters and other stakeholders in the transport industry at Professor Dora Akunyili Women Development Centre in Awka where he reduced the taxes levied on the operators, is being followed up with the intensification of the battle against touts, to make life more meaningful for Tricycle, Shuttle bus, and other commercial drivers.
He said to underscore the seriousness government attaches to the ban on touting, a set of Hotlines have been specifically created for the public to call anytime and anywhere touts are found to be in operation in Anambra State.
The Hotlines are: Airtel: 08122554530 and 08120356133, MTN: 07069680112 and 080669695398
He advised members of the public to call Operation Clean and Healthy Anambra OCHA Brigade through these numbers for the instant apprehension and prosecution of the touts.
