The Joint (Security) Task Force yesterday in the famed commercial town of Onitsha, Anambra State, arrested one Chukwudi Ogah, a motor park agent, for allegedly posing as a government revenue agent.

News Express gathered that Ogah was arrested at the popular Upper Iweka area of Onitsha while molesting a driver for not paying his daily levy.

During interrogation, an undisclosed amount of money and charms were found on the suspect, who claimed to be working for one Chijioke Onwe from Imo State.

He claimed that they generate more than N10,000 daily, but that he gets only a paltry N1,000, adding that the charm found on him was for protection against drivers’ curses.

Onwe, on his part, claimed that that he is a certified motor park agent appointed to manage Onitsha-Asaba township buses and motor parks.

He claimed to have been duly commissioned by the Anambra State Government as a park agent and brandished a letter allegedly signed by relevant transport and Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).
