The Association for the Advancement of Motorists’ Rights and Safety of Nigeria (AAMRSON) has condemned roadblocks by touts that claim to be tax agents on some highways across the country.

The union’s secretary, Mr Billy Oyemonian, made this known in Abuja on Wednesday while fielding questions from journalists after a stakeholders’ meeting on the increasing activities of self-acclaimed government revenue agents.

He urged security agents and other relevant authorities to stop the harassment of motorists by unlawful individuals across the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

He said, “We urge security agencies and the appropriate authorities to stop this abnormality of some individuals blocking highways in the name of revenue agents or collectors harassing and intimidating citizens. The situation is a security threat to motorists, as well as those that ply highways.”

He, therefore, urged the government at all levels to give the association full powers to tackle the menace, while working with the Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON).
