The directive is to ensure the roads are safe and free from obstruction and roadblocks sometimes used by armed robbers and other criminals to torment innocent travellers.

The statement read in part, “removal of all forms of illegal blockage of highways and roads, and other obstructions on public highways and roads created by unlawful revenue/tax collectors, road transport unions, labour and trade-related unions inhibiting vehicular movement and smooth passage of passengers and goods, and other road users across the country.

“Nigeria Police Force hereby advises the relevant state governments, local councils, boards of internal revenue service across the country, various transport unions, labour and traders associations that it is against the law for any organisation to create a blockage and restrict or restrain members of the public the free usage of roads and highways anywhere in the country.”
