Residents Loot Truck Conveying Palliatives in Ondo

Residents of Ondo State looted a truck conveying food items branded in President Tinubu’s name, according reports.

It was gathered that the driver of the truck was overpowered after his vehicle developed a mechanical fault at the popular cultural centre junction on Ondo express road.

However, remnants of the food items were observed on the roadside.

Witnesses who confirmed the development revealed that those who attacked the truck and also looted its contents included petty traders, artisans, drivers and commercial motorcyclists.

According to a witness, “How they got to know the content still surprised me. The truck developed a mechanical fault and before we knew it the residents forced it open.

“They began to bring out the items in the pack which are mostly grains like rice and garri branded in President Tinubu’s blue colour, name and logo”.

Although, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, said no official complaints was lodged at the station over the incident yet.
