The Rivers State Task Force on Sanitation Tuesday, January 10,2023 arrested suspected five drugs dealers after raiding an illegal dump site used as their abode at GRA phase 3, Port Harcourt.
Addressing newsmen after the demolition exercise, the chairman of the Task force, Isobo Jack express disgust against the activities of certain residents who seem to be bend on twarting the efforts of government to create a healthy living atmosphere for other residents.
His words : it is totally unacceptable for us to have such a dump site in new GRA. We are even surprised that it has come up to this point because we have been here for a couple of times to ensure people don’t use here as a dump site but they keep activating it. Now they have built a plank rooms where they deal on drugs and all sorts of things, which is unacceptable for us to have it anywhere in Port Harcourt.
Hon. Jack described the incident as part of the day to day challenges faced by the Task Force in the process of cleaning the city. He reminded residents of the state that the responsibility of keeping the environment clean should not be left for the government alone because cleanliness is next to godliness
He frowned at such indiscriminate dump site, warning that anybody caught creating such illegal Dump-Site and convert such to shelter for illegal activities will be arrested and prosecuted.
