By Olajide Fashikun

At the last count five buses belonging to different federations including a Toyota Hi-lux have been impounded by contractors who are armed with court orders to fife properties of the Ministry of Youth and Sports in order to pay debts of about N2billion.

Some of the buses impounded included those belonging to Athletics, Wrestling, Weightlifting, a project car belonging to the Facilities department of the Ministry.

A source told www.gongnews.net that the contractor who is presently armed with a court order to pick as many properties of the Ministry until when such monies can be said to have fully covered the amount being owed.

Efforts to get official comments from the Permanent Secretary, Mr Abdulrazak Salau proved abortive as he was not in the premises when we visited the Ministry.

Further details of the matter will be gotten.
