Calabar Woman Dives Under Trailer Begging To Die Over N5,000 Confiscated Goods




A middle-aged female trader in Cross River State lay in front of the back tyres of a big truck in an attempt at stopping the Ministry of Environment from seizing her merchandise valued at N5,000.
.
.
The unknown female attempted the near suicide at an Oando station opposite the rear wing of the U.J Esuene stadium in Calabar.
.
.
The trader had started the debacle when she was challenged by a task force agent in the ministry for breaking new trade policies which barred traders from setting or displaying wares in the open spaces along the major roads.
.
.
The woman’s stocks included biscuits and soft drinks.
She said that she would prefer being crushed by the truck, than watch her means of survival be confiscated by the agent.
.
.
She dove under the parked truck the task were using to collect the goods of those at fault and began crying.
.
.
The State Commissioner for Environment, Mr. Mike Eraye, had recently warned hawkers and roadside traders to “desist from displaying their wares along major roads.”
.
.
This is to create free flow of movement and neatness along carnival routes, some areas are being used to plant green grasses and beautify the city.
.
.
Eraye had warned them to relocate or face the consequences.
