Traders in Okrika in Rivers State are living in fear following the activities of hoodlums who are stationed at every junction of the local government area to collect an illegal toll.
The businessmen are made to pay a so-called survival package to the boys who are believed to be members of cult groups.
It may interest you to know that Ekerekana, Ibuluya, Abam, Ambeme Biri, Adedeme Biri, Ogoloma, Ibaka, Ogbogbo and Ogan Ama are some of the affected communities.
Witnesses say traders at the Weekly Tuesday Market to and from Ogoloma and kerosene deals were the worst hit in this illegal collection of tolls.
