Hardship: Residents overpower truck driver; loot rice, beans, garri branded in Tinubu’s name in Ondo

“The police should not hesitate to fish out these thieves,” Mr Adelusi said.

Residents of Akure, Ondo state capital, on Monday, engaged in widespread looting of food items and grains conveyed by a truck into the state, Peoples Gazette can report.

The truck was overpowered after it developed a mechanical fault at one of the popular junctions known as the cultural centre along the Ondo express road.

The Gazette learnt that the fully loaded truck was conveying food items in the cartoons branded in President Bola Tinubu’s name.

Several witnesses who confirmed the development said those who attacked the truck and also looted its contents included petty traders, artisans, drivers and commercial motorcyclists.

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
,
” a witness said.

However, remnants of the food items were observed on the roadside in footage circulated on Monday night.

A social commentator, Ibidapo Adelusi, immediately condemned the action of the residents, saying the police should go after the perpetrators.

“We know there’s hunger and hardship in the land but this is a crime against fellow humans. The police should not hesitate to fish out these thieves,” Mr Adelusi said.

The spokesperson for the police in Ondo, Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, could not be immediately reached for comments when contacted by The Gazette.

A message seeking reaction was yet to be delivered as of the time of filing in this report.

Nigerian Politicians are the most wicked set of humans in this world.
It's possible this food items are palliative meant for the hungry but it would found its way to a private warehouse where I twill be used for campaign purposes.

Tinubulation is not good

They are just good copycat of their Oga at the top

This looting is happening and we are all laughing as if it's a joke.

One day, they will start attacking individuals who went to market to buy food for his household. They will go into market and loot shops belonging to individuals that sells food.

This is not a laughing matter, if govt can't act fast, it will be too late to control the mobs.

LoL, God have mercy, it is getting serious.

But why is it always people from the president's side that do feel the effect of the president's maladministration most?

Check the past presidents and you will understand.

To transport goods in trailer now na risky action.

There is a saying that, a hungry man is an angry man, that is exactly what is playing out, people are trying to feed their families and they are beginning to go to the extreme to do so.
I don't condone stealing in whatever form but the government needs to do something about the cost of food items

The hunger and extreme poverty created by APC’s nine years of looting is really real.

Ẹnikanlomọ, those who feel it knows it.
