We are aware of the illicit mode of recruitment of incompetent and underage drivers, mostly from the North, who are well known to be on hard drugs before mounting the steering on voyage to kill on our Highways, precipitating our fundamental demand for a full forensic audit of all your driver’s as at date.

In view of the above the Council shall commence strict legal sanction and has further instructed their Legal Attorney: Juryman Associates to among others demand due investigation and onward prosecution of all truck drivers involved in this heinous criminality, furthermore to Institute vicarious liability action for damages for the monumental destructive damages caused all our roads in Yoruba Land, and accelerate action for demand for compensation of N100Billion damages sum for all the affected slained person’s family and dependants: in pursuit of both civil and corporate criminal liability litigations forthwith.

Alhaji Aliko Dangote, be informed that the entire Southwest youths shall mobilize for a total shut down of all Dangote investments in any parts of Yoruba Land, if this criminality remains unabated.

For our communities cannot continue to suffer from an unjust and cruel system.

We call on the Ogun State and Federal government to take decisive action as we shall be calling for an investigation into the contract award of the Ijebu Ode to Ibadan link road to Senator Lekan Mustapha and his cohorts.

This is just a tip of greater war ahead and the beginning of the end of injustice in Yoruba Land.
