Joe Abah Reacts To Interception Of Truck With 123 Men, 48 Bikes By Taskforce

Former Director-General of the Bureau of
Public Service Reforms, Joe Abah, has
criticised Lagos authorities over the
interception of a truck on Friday carrying
123 men and 48 motorcycles.
According to the Lagos State Environment
Sanitation and Special Offenses Taskforce,
the men were coming from Jigawa State.
The truck was seized at Agege area of the
state following a tip-off by members of the
public who raised security concern about
the manner with which the occupants of the
truck conducted themselves.
After the interception, the truck and its
occupants were moved to the office of the
taskforce in Oshodi for interrogation.
Dr Abah, in a tweet on Saturday, questioned
the move, saying the government was
playing politics with the interception.
“‘Illegal mass movement’? 123 people?
What if they had come by air? How many
people are on flights to Lagos every hour?
Is it because they are poor? The things that
damage our country the most are those
things we initially laugh about or play
politics with. #ThisIsWrong!” he said.
According to the chairman of Lagos State
Taskforce, Yinka Egbeyemi, some of the
men said they came to Lagos in search of
greener pastures.
Egbeyemi said that the Lagos Police
Command had directed that a fact-finding
panel be constituted to profile the detained
occupants of the truck, but he added that
nothing incriminating was found on them
apart from the motorcycles.
