In Ogun, Mob Sets Dangote Truck Ablaze For Killing Student

According to the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), a mob of secondary school students set fire to a truck bearing the Dangote Group’s inscription after a colleague was killed on Friday.

The collision occurred near Sabo intersection in Ilaro, Yewa South Local Government Area of Ogun, according to Babatunde Akinbiyi, the agency’s spokesman.

The vehicle, according to the official, was loaded with cement.

The event occurred less than a week after an enraged mob set fire to a corporate truck in Ogun State, resulting in the deaths of two people.

The mishap happened at 1:12 p.m., Mr Akinbiyi informed the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

The accident was caused by the truck’s excessive speed, according to a TRACE spokesperson.

“According to eyewitness accounts, the Dangote truck was coming from Ibese and heading towards Owode-Idiroko when the unfortunate incident happened.

“The driver of the truck lost control due to brake failure and crushed the student who was returning home from school.

“Some students trooped out in their numbers and set the Dangote truck on fire.
