KAROTA Dismisses Personnel Who Caused Traffic Gridlock In Kano
The Kano Road Traffic Agency, KAROTA has dismissed its officer whose actions provoked trailer drivers leading to the blockage of major roads in Kano.
Baffa Babba Dan’agundi, the Managing Director, Kano Road and Traffic Agency KAROTA announced the sack of the personnel, RTA II Jamilu Gambo, whose actions reportedly caused a heavy gridlock in the metropolis.
Gambo was dismissed on Thursday following his unprofessional conduct at his duty post.
He was reported to have punctured the tires of a truck following an argument with the trailer driver.
The development led to the shutdown of the Kano-Hadejia road by other trailer drivers in solidarity with their members, causing untold hardship on commuters and other road users.
But his sack came after an emergency meeting with the State Commissioner of Police where it was unanimously agreed the unscrupulous and undisciplined KAROTA Staff be relieved of his duties.
KAROTA boss, Dan’agundi expressed appreciation to NARTO for their quick intervention during the incident, which prevented a mob action that would have resulted in the death of Gambo.
He also thanked the police for their role and assured that anyone found wanting at his duty post would not be spared.
