Smoked fish seller BEATEN TO COMA IN BENIN BY MISCREA


At Mission road axis yesterday evening at about 5:35pm a certain woman selling smoked fish was beaten to coma by boys engaged by Governor Obaseki to curb street trading.

From what was gathered from those on ground, they said as from 5pm in every evening these miscreants apprehend traders, take them to Oba Market Police Station, demand money for failing to be settled.

EdokoWilsonBlog.Com were reliably informed that the so called Obaseki boys as they are fondly referred to get settled on a daily basis and failure to do so these helpless sellers are arrested and left to sleep in the cell so as to appear before the mobile court the following day, whoever pays the sum of between N15k to N30k gets released. If i may ask ,how is their wares worth?


In as much as we condemn the act of street trading under any guise, traders shouldn't be subjected to this inhuman and uncivil treatment in the hands of these extortionists.

Government should as a matter of urgency device more acceptable approach to address this menace.
