Suspected hoodlums, on Monday, set ablaze a vehicle conveying food items in Enugu State.
The vehicle was razed to enforce the sit-at-home declared by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The vehicle, which was conveying tomatoes, vegetables and other foodstuff, was stopped and 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 put out the fire.
“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,” Daily Trust quoted a resident of the state as saying.
Meanwhile, the Enugu police command said nobody has been arrested in connection with the incident, but investigation has commenced.
