Corrupt security officials responsible for delays on Nigerian ECOWAS boarders

Hon. Yusuf Sulaimon Lasun has said that corrupt security operatives manning the ECOWAS highway along the Seme boarder have resorted to corrupt practices in the discharge of their duties resulting to the delays witnessed by commuters on the said highway.

The parliamentarian said this while responding to questions from fellow ECOWAS parliamentarians in Abuja during the ongoing Second Ordinary Session of the ECOWAS Parliament.

Hon. Sulaimon presented Nigeria’s country report at the parliamentary retreat.

Members of the parliament raised eyebrows over what the termed “unnecessary delays” caused by too many road blocks mounted by men of the Nigerian Police Force along the Seme border.

A parliamentarian from Liberia alleged that the journey along that same route used to last for just thirty minutes, but with the increased security checks, some people end up spending almost six hours. This according to him was “counter-productive for the entire community”.

A Ghanaian parliamentarian also lamented incessant extortion of commuters on that same border line by men of the Nigerian Police Force. He however acknowledged that the situation existed as a result of the heightening insecurity in Nigeria in particular and in the ECOWAS region in general. He urged the Nigerian parliamentarians to work closely with security agents to ease the stress travelers have to go through while using the said highway.

Responding to issues raised by the parliamentarians, Hon. Sulaimon said “I think corruption is responsible for the problem…some of those police men are overzealous and corrupt”, he added.

He however promised that the Nigerian delegation would work assiduously with stakeholders to ameliorate the plight of community members affected by the menace.
