The Governor made the accusation when he visited the Maiduguri-Damaturu highway where thousands of travellers were stranded because security officials manning the highway locked it down.
“I am reporting everybody on this road. You people are collecting N1,000; no human being can accept this,” the governor said.
He wondered how the security personnel could do such a thing at a time and a region where the security of lives and properties should be a priority.
Governor Zulum said, “Boko Haram (terrorists) are attacking people and again, Nigerian military and soldiers and the police are receiving N1,000 fine to frustrate people. Nobody can accept this one.”
