The Managing Director of Kano Road and Traffic Agency (KAROTA), Baffa Babba DanAgundi, has sacked one of the agency’s employees, Jamilu Gambo.

Gambo was dismissed following unprofessional conduct at his duty post where he was said to have destroyed a trailer’s tyre after an argument between him and the trailer’s driver.

The other trailer drivers blocked the Kano-Hadejia Road in solidarity with their colleague, which caused untold hardship on commuters and other drivers plying the road

The public relations officer of the agency, Nabulusi Abubakar Kofar Naisa, in a statement apologised to the public whose movements were delayed as a result of the incident.

He said the sacked officer had been handed over to the police for further investigation and made to pay for the damages caused on the driver’s vehicle.
