COMTUA tackles Oyo agency over poor handling of obstruction issue
Council of Maritime Truck Unions and Associations (COMTUA) has carpeted the Oyo State Road Transport Management Authority (OYRTMA) for poor handling of a case of obstruction caused by a truck accident in the Challenge area of Ibadan in March, last month.

The said truck is owned by a member of the association.

 National President of COMTUA, Comrade Adeyinka Aroyewun, queried why the agency recovered the truck that was already evacuated to the garage and requested for obstruction charges to be paid on it and the container that actually caused obstruction. 

He explained that the association with the aid of police and the Federal Road Safety Corps, had immediately evacuated the truck, leaving only the container for lack of equipment.

Aroyewun also wondered why OYRTMA does not have fixed charges for traffic offences but fixing charges off hand and why payment should be made to a private company.

He stated that his association believes that the case of accident falls within the purview  of the police and any recovery bill should have been sent to the police. 
Aroyewun debunked the allegation by the chairman of the agency, Mr. Akin Fagbemi,  that he collected N500,000 from his member, the owner of the container to secure  its release.

He also described as false the allegation that he claimed to be an APC member to seek favour, saying that the blatant lie cannot fly since Oyo State is under PDP.
The president threatened a suit for the libellous statements if not proven or retracted.
