Following a protest, MC Oluomo bans illegal agbero taxes in a portion of Lagos.


Musiliu Akinsaya (Mc Oluomo), chairman of the Lagos State Parks and Garages Association, has waded into the state’s feud between commercial drivers and agberos (highway tax collectors who target commercial drivers).

According to one of the drivers, Mc Oluomo has banned the illegal taxes levied by agberos.

“Mc Oluomo told us this afternoon at the state council meeting that no driver from Oshodi to Tollgate should be forced to pay illegal agbero taxes any longer,” he told FIJ.

“We are only allowed to purchase two tickets per day, after which we will not be charged anything other than loading fees.”

“The standard ticket”

The Lagos State Park Management has approved and sold it for N800.

“He stated that the additional taxes levied on Iyana Ipaja and Agbado Ijaiye were no longer valid. We can buy our daily tickets in either Oshodi or Tollgate, and both will be accepted.

“After that, we’ll buy the council ticket and make a security booking, which will cost about N500.”

To appease the irate drivers, Akinsanya stated that they would no longer pay for tickets on Saturdays and Sundays.

“For weekend jobs, Mc Oluomo has mandated that no driver be forced to purchase tickets on Saturdays and Sundays,” he said.

“The union should only force us to buy tickets Monday through Friday.” We should be given the opportunity to take something.

We returned to our families.

“He donated N1 million to those injured in the attack on protesting drivers.” He stated that it should be used to treat those who have been injured as well as those whose property has been stolen.

“I’m overjoyed. We are scheduled to resume work tomorrow with minimal agbero disruptions.

“There are no more exorbitant taxes.” In comparison to the N20,000 we previously paid, all we have to pay in a day is slightly less than N2,500.”

Meanwhile, while addressing the drivers on Thursday morning, Lagos State Commissioner of Police Idowu Owohunwa stated that the agbero issue was not unique to the drivers.
