OYOGist.com has learned that the officers of the Oyo State Road Transport Management Authority (OYRTMA) have impounded about 36 commercial trailers and other articulated vehicles belonging to haulage companies and logistics departments during its routine operations and surveillance in the State.

The Executive Chairman, OYRTMA, Dr. Akin Fagbemi revealed that the operators of the trucks while coming or passing through Oyo State to other parts of the country willfully boycotted the lock-down orders of neighbouring States, using their trucks to convey multitude of persons as against the approved carriage of food items, pharmaceutical products and other essential goods/services.

Fagbemi sternly warned all companies, drivers of articulated trucks, who engage in such act, adding that any vehicle impounded shall be made to face the full wrath of the extant laws of the State.

Dr. Fagbemi also expressed high confidence that if all stakeholders played their respective roles and abide by government’s stipulated safety procedures and guidelines, Oyo State would not only defeat the viral disease, but come out stronger and take her rightful place as the true Pace Setter State of the Federation.
