An angry mob set fire on Saturday to a truck allegedly belonging to Dangote whose driver had crushed to death a motorcyclist on the old Ibadan road, Ijebu Ode in the Ogun area.


Babatunde Akinbiyi, the Commissioner of Public Relations, Traffic Enforcement and Enforcement (TRACE), confirmed the incident.


Akinbiyi explained that the accident occurred around 8 a.m. and was caused by the driver of the truck who was driving too fast.


According to him, the truck driver hit the moving motorcyclist while he was in a roundabout.


He noted that three men were involved in the accident: the motorcyclist, the truck driver and the driver.


"The truck was coming from Ago-Iwoye towards Ijebu-Ode when the driver could not control the vehicle due to speeding as he approached the Ibadan roundabout.


"He hit the motorcyclist who was trying to pass the roundabout at that time and killed him on the spot.


"The driver was arrested after trying to escape and was beaten mercilessly by the angry mob, who also set the truck on fire.


"But the intervention of TRACE, the police, NSCDC and FRSC personnel would have killed the driver," he said.


A spokesman went on to say that the driver and motorist were arrested and taken to the Traffic Division in Igbeba, Ijebu-Ode.


He added that the body of the deceased had been placed in the morgue of Femtop Hospital in Ijebu-Ode.


Akinbiyi asked the articulated truck drivers to keep their vehicles, be more responsive when driving and avoid speeding, especially when approaching a curve and a roundabout.
