Hoodlums loot truckload of spaghetti in Zaria

Hoodlums, on Friday, attacked a BUA truck conveying cartons of spaghetti at the Dogarawa axis of Zaria-Kano expressway.

Dogarawa is a settlement located on the outskirts of Zaria along the expressway.

This is coming barely one week after hoodlums hijacked trailers loaded with foodstuffs in the Suleja area of Niger State, carting away bags of rice and other food items amidst widespread hardship in the country.

The trailers were said to be heading for Abuja from Kaduna when the thugs blocked the road and made bonfires on the highway.

It was learnt that the Friday incident occurred around 3.15pm after the driver of the truck parked by the road side to observe prayer.

Immediately after the driver parked, the hoodlums were said to have started to cart away cartons of spaghetti.

An eyewitness, who described the incident as unfortunate and regrettable, said such act had never occurred around the area since he had been trading there for more than 10 years.

“Not a single cartoon of the spaghetti was left by the hoodlums on the truck,” the source added.

It was learnt that a police team deployed to the scene of the incident arrested five suspects.
