Angry Youths in Saki, a town in Oyo State, have set a truck loaded with cattle ablaze for killing a boy, Ayuba Raji.
According to a report by a resident of the town identified as Kazeem Adeniyi, drivers in the area have been driving carelessly and not heeding to road traffic regulations which resulted in the death of the boy.
He said: “Yesterday, Monday, 11th of January, 2021, around 10pm, an accident occurred at Challenge junction which claimed the life of a boy, Ayuba Raji, who was the younger brother of a popular Yoruba presenter and musician, Monsurat Raji. The boy was riding a motorcycle when he was hit by a truck transporting cows out of Saki.
“An angry mob burnt the truck. It was late before Saki First (Lawal) could get in touch with the police to prevent more damage from being done. Speeding and reckless driving are what we know those cow transporters for. It’s now the right time for us to ensure the Federal Road Safety Corps trains people properly on how to drive. We took the step last year but the COVID-19 pandemic prevented us from going ahead with it.
