The company has also set up hotlines to report such truck drivers, with a promise to appropriately compensate calls that lead to arrest of errant drivers.
The Management of Dangote Group in a statement alerting and encouraging the public to report any suspected Dangote truck driver involved in illegal haulage provided hotlines to make such reports
It said, “Dangote Industries Limited also wishes to warn those that illegally transport materials on Dangote truck that such unauthorized goods, when found, shall be confiscated and such owners prosecuted to the full extent of the law”
It would be recalled that the company recently intercepted one of the its truck loaded with contrabands in Ibadan, arrested the drivers and handed them over the Nigerian customs for further investigations and prosecutions. The arrest was effected by a crack team of the company’s security personnel led by its Chief Security Officer who acted on intelligence, bordering on misconduct by some of its drivers.
While handing over the drivers and his motor boy to the Customs Authority, Assistant General Manager, in charge of Security Services, CSP Ali Garba explained that the company has a surveillance section that monitors all its trucks and drivers’ activities.
