41 vehicles stolen from the Imo Transport Company (ITC) by the company’s prior managers and officeholders in the government of the past administrations,have been reclaimed by the Imo State Government .
It was disclosed by the Chairman, management committee of ITC, Ibezim Onyekachi, that the vehicles were retrieved from Mass Transport Network (MTN) Company, Imo Travels and Tours, and some other conveyance firms owned by the former chairman of ITC and others who oversaw the company in recent past.
“We have recovered about 41 vehicles and still counting, from people who are with ITC properties.” He said.
“It is a fact that the former chairman here converted a lot of ITC vehicles to establish his own private transport company. Before he became chairman of ITC, he never owned a transport company. But, immediately he became ITC chairman, he became a transporter.
“Also, when he was exiting as the chairman of ITC, a lot of vehicles belonging to ITC went missing from various loading bays across the nation. The question is, what happened to all those vehicles? We later traced some of the vehicles to his private transport company.” He disclosed.
However, apart from the stolen vehicles, Ibezim disclosed that his management were also extricating ITC vehicles that were seized in Lagos and other states as well as company vehicles that were littered in police stations across Nigeria.
