The Benin-Auchi road has become a nightmare to motorists as armed robbers have constantly blocked the road dispossessing passengers and drivers’ of their belongings due to the absence of police on the roads.
There are reports that robbery on the road is now a daily occurrence as police were yet to return to their duty post in the State.
Before the #EndSARS protest, the presence of police in all flash points and other parts of the road had led to a reduction in the rate of criminality on the road.
Some motorists who told Radio Delta decried the development saying that the road was no longer safe for anyone and appealed to the police to return to their duty post in the interest of the people.
Efforts to reach the Edo State Police Public Relations Officer, Chidi Nwanbuzor on the development were unsuccessful.
