There is an Igbo adage that says that until slap is involved in tax collection, it is usually a tough one. 

Desperate situations require desperate measures. That may have informed the decision of Anambra State government to teach martial arts to its revenue collectors.

The state government trained members of the ‘Operation Clean and Healthy Anambra Brigade’, also known as Obiano police, in the martial arts, especially taekwondo, to tackle revenue defaulters and related offenders in the state.

Obiano, who stated this on Friday during the graduation of eight officers of the OCHA brigade, said he would not relent until criminal elements in the state were shown the way out or forced to change.

He said the establishment of the OCHA Brigade and other related bodies was targeted at assisting the government to fight miscreants and stop them from tarnishing the image of the state.

The governor, who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Primus Odili, commended the vibrancy for which the OCHA brigade was known for and urged them to sustain the standard.

He pledged government’s continued support for the organisation, urging the officers to reciprocate the gesture by living up to expectations.

He said: "The governor can’t create this organisation and allow it to fail. It is his interest to see you succeed because your success is his. But he also needs to see you put in your best".
