In furtherance of its resolve to bring sanity and protect the beautification of Edo state, the state government has commenced clampdown on traders that display their wares on the walkways.

The team of enforcers which was led by the state Commissioner for Environment and Public Utilities, Mr. Clem Agba visited Oba, New Benin and Agbado markets including Mission Road business area where goods of defaulters were confiscated.

Mr. Agba also ordered the demolition of makeshift structures used by some traders to display their good on the walkways.

In a chat with www.johnmayaki.com, Mr. Clem Agba said different warning had been issued to the traders stressing that wares seized would be destroyed as a deterrent to defaulters.

However, the commissioner intervened on the standoff between traders and the state task force at Upper Lawani that where traders complained that their goods were confiscated despite paying stipulated market levies.

Mr. Agba ordered the return of the goods and sounded a note of warning to members of the team that the exercise was not meant to oppress the traders, but to bring sanity to the markets.

At Agbado market the commissioner debunked the allegations that men of the task force were been used for extortion warning the traders desist from displaying their wares on walkways as any offender would have his goods confiscated.

Part of the enforcement team also saw the Commissioner for Transport, Mr. Iriogbe Isimheme led another team to deflate tyres of vehicles parked indiscriminately along major roads in the market.

www.johnmayaki.com gathered that despite the clamp down by the task force in recent times, traders often resurface.
