Top government officials in Ondo State were shocked Wednesday when workers in the state who have been on strike for more than a week now started impounding all government-owned vehicles found plying the streets.

The labour leaders said government officials with official cars had resorted to driving themselves as government drivers took part in the strike.

The officials said all workers should be observing the strike and government business ought to close.

Local government vehicles were not spared as labour union leaders also seized them.

The workers were protesting the non-payment of five months’ salary arears

They threatened that impounded vehicles would be held until the end of the strike.
