Enugu Capital Territory Development Authority (ECTDA) at the weekend arrested seven fake revenue collectors operating within Enugu North Local Government Area.
The fake revenue collectors, who claimed to be staff of the Ministry of Environment and Enugu North Local Government Area, were apprehended by chairman of ECTDA, Mr Josef Onoh and a team of security operatives.
It was gathered the suspects at the point of arrest, had confiscated building materials from different construction sites within G.R.A axis of Enugu metropolis.
Items recovered from the suspects included 10 cartons of 60×60cm tiles, 2 bags of white cement, fake ID cards, fake Ministry of Environment tax force letter and Youth Empowerment Levy receipts of Enugu North Local Government Area.
Briefing journalists after the arrest, Onoh said the brutality of the suspects’ action in collecting property levy and other revenue was sabotaging economic development in the state.
He assured the suspects would be handed over to the police for prosecution in court.
