Insecurity: Anambra Govt Gives Ultimatum As They Begin Registration Of Transport Operators

All transport businesses, organizations, and operators in Anambra State will be enumerated and registered using biometrics, according to the state government.

This was revealed in a statement released by the Anambra State Internal Revenue Service, AiRS, and signed on behalf of the chairman by Sylvia Tochukwu Ngige, Deputy Director/Head, Taxpayer Education and Enlightenment Team.



The exercise “is in keeping with Governor Charles Soludo’s strategy to nip the recent security concerns of the State in the bud,” according to the release.

Shuttle bus drivers, tricycles known as Keke, vehicles such as mini-trucks, tippers, lorries, and taxi drivers are among those engaged.

The drill, which began on June 2, 2022, will take place in chosen ports that will be announced by union leaders.

The statement mandated all stakeholders to comply within four weeks from June 2, 2022.

It warned that “failure to comply attracts impoundment.”

Anambra State has been under attack from “unknown gunmen”, with hundreds of residents killed, scores of houses, police stations, government offices, and vehicles set ablaze, and thousands displaced from their ancestral homes within the last one year.

In most cases of the incidents, the attackers invade with unregistered vehicles.
