Pandemonium broke out in Ilaro Yewa-South Local Government Area of Ogun State as angry mob set ablaze a truck laden with cement belonging to the Dangote Cement Company after crushing a secondary school pupil to death.

The Spokesman for the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), Mr Babatunde Akinbiyi, confirmed the incident to newsmen.

The TRACE spokesperson added that the incident occurred on Friday after the pupils closed from the school at Sabo Junction in Ilaro.

Akinbiyi attributed the incident to loss of control due to speeding, noting that the truck was burnt beyond recognition.
