The Management of Dangote Industries Limited has launched a passionate appeal to members of the public to assist in monitoring both the recklessness and the illegal haulage of contrabands goods
by some of the company’s truck drivers.
The company has also set up hotlines for the public to call in and report such truck drivers, with a promise to appropriately compensate calls that lead to arrest of errant drivers.
Noting that the trucks belonging to Dangote Cement are only allowed to carry Cement, High Grade Gypsum and Coal, while those belonging to Dangote Sugar (NASCON) are authorised to carry only
Salt and Dan Q seasoning.
A statement from the company yesterday also stated that trucks belonging to Agrosacks, the bags producing arm of Dangote group, can only carry bags, belonging to Dangote flour Mills, Wheat, Flour
“The Management of Dangote Industries Limited hereby alerts the public to report any suspected Dangote Truck driver involved in illegal haulage.
Dangote Management also issues a stern warning to those illegally transporting unauthorised goods through its trucks.
“Dangote Industries Limited also wishes to warn those that illegally transport materials on Dangote truck that such unauthorised 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 company’s trucks 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 his trucks and drivers’ activities.
