MOSOP Condemns Police Extortion on Eleme-Bori Road

The Kingdom Coordinators and Chapters Leaders Forum of the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) have condemned in strong terms the increasing rate of Police extortion on the Eleme-Bori axis of the East-West road.

MOSOP chapter leaders in press statement Signed by Frank Jonah Chairman, MOSOP Kingdom Coordinators Forum and made available to NF-Reports noted that the situation has become embarrassing and shameful for the reputation of the Nigerian Police.

The Coordinators Forum further condemned the activities of the security personal who have chosen to take advantage of innocent Ogonis plying the East-West road extorting money from drivers and neglecting the key responsibility for which they have been posted to the area – security.
“We particularly note the notoriety of the activities of the Federal Highway Patrol teams on the Eleme-Bori road whose focus have almost shifted to looking for avenues for extortion rather than providing security on the East-West Road.

“An embarrassing situation which occurred yesterday when hoodlums took over parts of the East-West road attests to the laxity of the Police forces. Of course, they could not have detected the influx of miscreants to the Akpajo axis of the road while they are busy looking for money.
“We urge the Police authorities to caution the patrol teams on the Eleme-Bori axis of the East-West Road. We will want to see greater security for lives and properties and not check points and extortion”.
