The Commissioner of Police, Benue state command, Bartholomew Onyeka has ordered the dismantling of non-security road blocks in the state.
He also ordered that those involved in erecting such road blocks be arrested and brought to book.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Catherine Anene, and made available to newsmen.
Onyeka gave the order after a tour in some parts of the state where he observed with dismay the presence of non-security road blocks.
Consequently, he has therefore, directed area commanders, divisional police officers and all tactical commanders to ensure that this order is enforced within their areas of responsibility.
The Commissioner emphasized that these points have become places of extortion and that criminals can use such points for robbery at night.
He further warned people involved in such road blocks to desist from it or face the law.
