"Police extortion disturbing supply of essential commodities"

Following alleged extortion and unnecessary delay of legitimately certified transporters by men of the Nigeria Police, military and other security operatives nationwide, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, Nasir Sani-Gwarzo has expressed dismay over the act.

This disclosure was made by Gwarzo disclosed during a brief from Emergency Operation Centre of the Committee on Sustainable Production and Delivery of Essential in Abuja.

According to him, despite reporting the development to the higher authority of the Nigeria Police and the Security Task Force of COVID-19, the complaints still persist.

This he said, is a great blow to the noble directive of the President for a free-flow and unhindered movement of Essential Commodity across the country, but we will not stop until the situation is addressed.

The Emergency Operation Centre has so far received a total of fifty-five cases across the country, fifty-four of which have been resolved at the level of the Committee.
