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.
