The introduction of Nigeria Army, Navy, Custom and Police Check Points all over Aba City and the entire cities in Biafra Land have done great harm than good to Biafrans .
These Check Points are Nigerian official set channels for these uniformed men to commit atrocities against innocent people of Biafra. This channel of extortion and humiliation of Biafrans is empowered by president Muhammadu Buhari led Hausa Fulani administration.

These unholy money making outfits of Buhari's Government is nothing short of a cool strategy for the total impoverishment and devastation of innocent Biafrans. Soldiers perpetrate this dubious act by using teenage boys between the ages of 13-19 years as their money collectors from Biafran motorists.

They equally extort money from individuals at the check Points whom they level wrong allegations on as a means of subjecting them to inhuman treatment and unnecessary detention in Police, Navy, Army, or Custom barracks and Prisons. After which they demand huge amount of money from them for bail thereby illegally enriching themselves.

It is unfortunate, that this dubious act caused the death of a teenage boy, killed by an army Officer at Asa. 144 Batalion Army base Check Point along Aba – Port Harcourt Expressway in Abia State Biafra land recently.
Presently, the same evil check points have been distributed in other cities in Biafra land including Owerri, Igweocha, Umuahia, Onitsha, Iselukwu, Okirika, Orlu, Calabar, Asaba, Anioma, Ikot Ekpene, Uyo, Warri, Sapele, Abakaliki, Enugu, Okigwe, Yenegoa, Ogoni, Eleme, Nkwerre, Nkpor, Nnewi, Obehie, Asa, Nsukka, Obosi to mention but a few.

According to eye witnesses and individuals who are victims of extortion by these uniformed people, the dubious act is fixed for all road users, ranging from individuals on transit to vehicles carrying market women returning from market.
This is the most current lucrative business practice perpetrated across Biafra Land by the Nigerian Armed Forces, and nobody is inclined to speak out.

Our governors are pretending to be blind, deaf and dumb. While our legislatures both state and federal are impotent, looking on helplessly while the people they are supposed to represent are passing through untold hardship and degradation.
The world should take note
