Anambra arrests 250 illegal revenue collectors

Mr Mark Okoye, Anambra State Commissioner for Economic Planning, said that 250 illegal revenue collectors have been arrested and charged to court.

Okoye, who disclosed this while briefing journalists in Awka on Friday, said government would ensure that justice was done to serve as a deterrent to erring citizens.

“We implore the public to shun any act that goes against the developmental vision of the state as the government would not hesitate to lawfully deal with any defaulter,” Okoye said.

The commissioner said that the government under the watch of Willie Obiano was committed to delivering democratic dividends to the people.


Okoye said the state government had presented a realistic budget to the state lawmakers for the year 2020 and assured the residents of better days ahead.

He said, “We scaled down on the size of 2020 budget because we are a realistic government and we intend to have a people-oriented budget,” he said.
