Traffic police and the face of Edo

SIR: Since the return of democracy to Nigeria, there has been disorder particularly in public places. Some of our people misunderstand civilian rule for disorderliness and Edo State has not been left out.

Perhaps this was what led the Comrade Governor to introduce state traffic men aka Oshiomhole Police. They are saddled with the responsibility of supporting the FRSC to bring order to the disorder on our roads. But that’s not what is happening today. Rather, they seem to be contributing to the disorder and creating a bad image for the Edo State government. They extort, intimidate and frighten the populace with their mode of operation.

I would like to encourage our Comrade Governor to set up a committee to check the excesses of the Oshiomhole Police in Edo State.
