A mob on Saturday set ablaze a Dangote truck for killing one motorcyclist and injuring three others.

The incident happened around 8 am on the Old Ibadan Roundabout Road, Ago-Iwoye, in the Ijebu-North Local Government Area of Ogun State.

The accident involved the truck and a motorcycle, said the Public Relations Officer of the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, Babatunde Akinbiyi.

Akinbiyi said the truck driver lost control of the vehicle and ran over the moving motorcycle, killing the rider and injuring three others.

Annoyed by the incident, protesters thronged the road and set ablaze the truck while the driver was reportedly beaten. The driver was later rescued from the clutches of the mob by security operatives.

Akinbiyi in a statement explained that the Dangote truck driver was coming from Ago-Iwoye inbound Ijebu-Ode when the incident happened.

The driver has been arrested and taken to Igbeba Motor Traffic Division, Ijebu-Ode, as well as the motor boy.
