In the news reported by Nigeria Info FM and cited by BelieveallBlog, motorist has accused some officials of the Rivers State Task Force on illegal Street Trading and Motor Park of attacking him with a machete during their operations.

Speaking with news Reporter, the motorist who gave his name as Mr Emmanuel said he was beaten up for filming the Task Force officials with his phone when he saw them harassing another driver along the East-West road in Rumuosi, Port Harcourt.

He said the Task Force officials vandalized his car and took his phone.

Below is what was posted on the official Facebook page of the Port Harcourt based radio station today:

This is not the first time such thing would be reported against the members of the Rivers State Task Force.

Some weeks ago, the Coordinator of the Task Force, DSP Felix Nwadibeyi (Rtd) said on radio that his men are well trained to carry out their task.

He also warned that any member of the Task Force who disobeyed the order will be published according to law while warning members of the Public to be law-abiding.

The question now is, is it right for members of Task Force to go about with weapons?
