Onitsha transporters threaten to embark on nationwide strike over increasing highway robbery attacks and abduction

Published

Transporters in Onitsha have raised the alarm over alleged incessant robbery attacks and abduction of their staff and passengers in major highways leading to Lagos, Abuja and Northern Nigeria.

Following the alleged incidents, they have revealed plans to embark on a nationwide strike if something urgent is not done by the Federal Government and the Police over insecurity in the federal highways

Mr. Emenike Okafor, the Manager of God’s Will Transport made this known during a press conference in Onitsha, where he claimed that the Benin bypass area of Ogbemudia Farm, to Ore and Lokoja in Kogi State towards Abuja highway is the most dangerous flashpoints where the bandits operate unhindered.

He said that some of the fleet operators that have fallen victims include luxurious bus owners, commuter bus operators, and executive Siena bus operators who convey passengers from Onitsha to various locations, terminals in Enugu, Aba, and Port Harcourt.

Mr. Emenike also raised an alarm over the increase of daylight armed robbery and abduction of passengers on the highways within the past two weeks, after the #EndSARS protest which turned violent.

He said: “We have recorded cases of passenger robbery and abduction in the last two weeks, involving Sienna and Hummer buses with about six passengers kidnapped in those areas.

“We, therefore, call on the Inspector-General of Police to activate his rapid response mechanism and the establishment of a joint patrol team involving the Army, Police and Civil Defence Corps in the affected areas.t

“Travelling has become increasingly riskier following the security challenges, being faced by commuters.”

“Meanwhile, we must use this opportunity to commiserate with the Police over the casualties and losses they recorded during the #EndSARS protest that later turned violent.”

“We must state that no responsible citizen no matter how highly provoked would engage in burning, looting, and attack on the Police who are saddled with the task of protecting the citizens and their properties. ”

“It is the criminals that unleashed the attacks on Police formations just to destabilise the country’s security, but they must not be allowed to succeed.

“We, therefore, appeal to the Police to go back fully to their duty with renewed vigour and zeal, and we implore the Government to motivate them by improving their welfare and compensate the families of those that lost their lives during the crisis.”

Published

Ghana Election 2020: Award winning Investigative Crusader Journalist and Anti-Corruption Manasseh Azuri Awuni is saying, Ghanaians will return to the street to hustle after enjoying Free SHS.

According to Manasseh, Ghanaians has helped the government to cover corruption issues with Free SHS, praising the government whiles they know they are corrupting the system in the worst possibly ever.


He is of the convictin that, corruption will definately affect anybody, whether rich or poor.

“Whether we talk about it or not, corruption has consequences for everyone of us, including those who have insured their future generations against poverty by stealing and hoarding what belongs to all of us.”

Taking to Facebook, Manasseh wrote a statement which reads;

Free SHS and Corruption

Free SHS was not what brought Akufo-Addo to power. He promised Free SHS in 2008 and lost. He promised Free SHS in 2012 and lost.

In 2016, he won mainly because Ghanaians were outraged about corruption. And what has he done about the fight against corruption which he promised? Not only has he taken corruption to an absurd level, but he has undermined anti-corruption agencies like the Auditor-General.

But some people say he has brought about free SHS so we should not talk about corruption. Why not? The unbridled corruption of years of yore is what has impoverished so many people that they cannot afford decent livelihoods and pay the fees of their wards.

The interests and repayments of the misapplied and stolen billions we are borrowed are choking us. And people will attend the schools for free and go back to their parents’ single rooms to hustle for obvious reasons.

Whether we talk about it or not, corruption has consequences for everyone of us, including those who have insured their future generations against poverty by stealing and hoarding what belongs to all of us.

It is possible to have implemented free SHS without corruption.

Or?
