Aba Residents Protest Against Extortion by Military and Road Safety Checkpoints.

The people of Osisioma Axis of the Eyimba city of Aba, Abia State, protests against the multiple and illegal military checkpoint in Aba.

According to one of the residents he said the protestors were carrying placards with different inscriptions like "STOP THE EXTORTION", STOP THE ILLEGAL ROAD BLOCKS", "STOP USING NAVY", among many.

Speaking on his own opinion he said "Well I fully support this ongoing protest because I have also suffered series of harassment and vehicle breakdown as a result of this blocks.

According the residents of the Osisioma axis they said it has now become a daily routine for the Navy and Federal Road Safety Corps to block roads and everybody is now aware of this act that usually result to long queue of traffic as these security operatives extort money from drivers.

They also mentioned that their major concern is the fact that they do no have any Naval Base in Osisioma and they see no reason why they should be disturbed by the Navy, as the Road Safety Commission now use the same avenue created by the Nigerian Navy to form road blocks and extort money from people.
