In apparent protest against the order by Lagos State Government that trucks and articulated vehicles should only move within the Lagos metropolis between the hours of 9pm and 6am, truck drivers in the state, on Thursday, began to withdraw their services from the ports.

The restriction order was handed down by the state government following an accident involving a container truck which claimed three lives at Ojuelegba.

Truck drivers under the aegis of the Association of Maritime Truck Owners, AMATO, and the National Association of Road Truck Owners said that they would withdraw their trucks from the road with immediate effect over the restriction directive.


Speaking with The Punch over the development, the Chairman of AMATO, Chief Remi Ogungbemi, said it was difficult for members to comply with the state directive on the restriction due to security reasons.

He said: ?This is why we have decided to withdraw our services with immediate effect until normalcy returns. The state policy restricting trucks movement to the night would be hard to comply with because the safety of our trucks, drivers and the cargoes cannot be guaranteed.

?Hijackers are hijacking trucks with goods till date. So, if we move at night, hijacking will become more rampant.?

According to Ogungbemi, the warehouses and factories where the cargoes are discharged by the truck drivers don?t operate at night, adding also that the state government has not earmarked anywhere to serve as a park for truck drivers.
