With the reconstruction of the Onitsha end of the Niger Bridge to Upper Iweka, most motorists and users of Onitsha Bridge heaved a sigh of relief that the persistent gridlock on the bridge, which has become a nightmare to the users of the bridge, will ease off. And it did ease until in the last one year or thereabout when the Federal Government drafted soldiers to both ends of the bridge, apparently to checkmate the seemly excesses of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). But apart from the soldiers, the Onitsha Bridge especially the Asaba end has become very attractive for security operatives, which apparently think that was the best place to track down suspected outlaws. Even State and local Government revenue operators have found the place as the best portion to track down motorists. And so within a short distance between old toll gate to the bridge, one will see hoodlums blocking the road as revenue agents for the state, Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), Mobile and Regular Police, Road Safety personnel and then, the Army. Each of these groups would stop motorists, heading to and from Onitsha, which halts vehicular movements and given the volume of traffic along the road, within seconds, traffic would build up. It is better imagined what happens when all these bodies stop vehicles. The presence of all these bodies, which unfortunately turned the Asaba end of the bridge as an “extortion point” has brought in its wake traffic gridlock, causing not only loss of man hours and huge revenue but also untold suffering to the users of the bridge.

How has the year been for you? 
The year has been great by his grace. It has been awesome and all I can say is thank you Lord for keeping me this far. 

You seem to have bounced back to the industry; why the sudden break initially?
Music made me take a break. I read sometimes ago that you have ‘repented’ and no longer flaunting your cleavages, how true is that? I repented a long time ago.  I wear what’s proper now, I just feel it’s needed.
