Ondo Police Probe Looting of Food Truck

The Ondo State Police Command stated on Tuesday said that no arrests had been made regarding the looting of a truck suspected to be carrying palliatives along the Ondo-Akure Expressway.

On Monday evening, a truck was attacked by residents of Akure, the capital of Ondo State.

According to reports, the bus, traveling from Ondo town to Akure, broke down and was parked by the roadside. Residents of the Adebowale area of the town then discovered the truck’s contents and allegedly looted it.

A source in the area told newsmen that upon seeing foodstuffs packed in cartons bearing President Bola Tinubu’s photo, the looters mobilized and looted the items.

“Most of those who looted the truck were Okada riders and some artisans in the area.

“As soon as they discovered that the truck was carrying foodstuffs and other items, they mobilised to the place, and they looted as many cartons as they could.”

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, said the command was still investigating the matter, but no one had been arrested.

“We haven’t arrested anyone, but we are investigating,” the PPRO explained.
