BY VINCENT UJUMADU

AWKA — TRAVELLERS passing through Awka, Anambra State, had an ugly experience yesterday as members of the state task force on the registration and branding of commercial vehicles clashed at the popular Aroma junction in the state capital over alleged non-compliance with the payment of the prescribed levies.

One of the bus drivers had allegedly packed to pick a passenger when members of the task fore pounced on him and impounded his vehicle.

Noticing what happened to their colleague, other drivers blocked the expressway and for several hours, movement was virtually hampered.

According to the drivers, members of the task force have been making things  difficult for them. They added that they were forced to pay all kinds of levies while passing through Anambra State.
