Dangote Truck Carrying APC-Branded Rice Crushes Dozens To Death In Ekiti
More than 20 persons were crushed to death on Saturday night in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, by a truck conveying branded rice linked to a politician.
“The accident actually happened at Iworoko road in Ado Ekiti just this evening and I heard that there were causalities, but I cannot give figures. I am yet to get proper briefing about it. I learnt that the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in charge of that area is now on his way to the scene. So, I cannot give you the details, until he is back to brief us,” he said.
