Wife of governor of Anambra State, Mrs Ebelechukwu Obiano, has decried the activities of touts who extort money from hapless market women across the state.
Ebelechukwu voiced her concern at a ceremony at AforIgwe Market, Umudioka, Idemili North Local Government Area of the state where she inaugurated a modern toilet facility for use of the traders.
She said that arbitrary levy collection from hapless market women by touts was wrong and not supported by any laws of the state.
The wife of the governor warned those who indulge in the act to desist henceforth or be prepared to face the law.
According to her, the practice was in contravention of the state revenue collection procedures and laws.
She said the governor was worried over reports about the unsavoury activities of some sponsored touts who indulge in the act as it undermined the genuine intentions of his government.
