The Anambra State Commissioner of Police, Mr Hassan Karma, has dismissed rumours that the traffic gridlock at the bridge head axis of Onitsha is caused by military checkpoint.
The Police Commissioner said that despite the influx of people into the state, the security agencies have been doing their best to ensure the road is not congested.
He blamed the impatience among motorists and other road users for the traffic situation in the area.
Mr Karma also cautioned citizens against unnecessary exaggeration of situations or raising false alarm, saying this would not be beneficial to anybody.
Officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) have been in charge of directing traffic in and out of the state.
