Sit-at-home: Hoodlums burn vehicle conveying food items in Enugu

Suspected hoodlums set ablaze a vehicle conveying food items in Enugu State on Monday.

The suspects set the vehicle on fire during the sit-at-home declared by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The vehicle conveying tomatoes, vegetables and other foodstuff was burnt at Edem junction, Ibeagwa in Enugu East Local Government Area of the state.

The vehicle was said to be returning  from the Ugwogo end of the Opi-Enugu by-pass when it was attacked

Sympathisers were said to have put a call to the State Fire Service, who eventually contained the inferno.

As at the time of filing this report, no contact had  been established with the driver of the burnt vehicle or the owner of the goods to determine the extent of loss, however.

A sympathiser said, “It’s a fairly huge loss which ought not to have occurred had our people reasoned very well before embarking on retrogressive actions such as this one.”

Meanwhile, Enugu police Command, said nobody had been arrested so far in connection with the incident, adding that investigation had commenced.
