River state governor, Nyesom Wike, has stopped the ban on illegal street trading and motor parks in the state, and has asked that the state task force be dissolved.
The news of the dissolution was announced by Mr Paulinus Nsirim, River State’s Commissioner for Information and Communications.
He directed all members of the task force to return their operational vehicles and identity cards to the office of the Secretary to the State Government not later than 4pm on Wednesday, Aug. 12.
“They will be paid their salaries as they return the vehicles and identity cards. “Government will reconstitute the task force after proper orientation and training,” He added.
The governor also sacked Mr Bright Amaewhule, the Special Assistant to the Governor in charge of the task force, of his appointment.
According to media reports the task force had been engaging in fights with motorists and street traders which often led to destruction of vehicles, goods and inflicting of injuries on some members of the public.
