Some youths in Saki, Oyo State have burnt down a truck loaded with cows after it knocked down and killed a boy.

The youths set the truck ablaze moments after a boy was knocked down.

The truck, which was conveying some cows, was burnt with the cows in it by the angry youths.

According to eyewitnesses, the truck driver reportedly knocked down a boy named Ayuba Raji on Monday evening, January 11, at Challenge junction, in Saki.

The victim was riding a Boxer motorcycle and was hit by a truck transporting cows out of Saki.

Spokesman of Saki Town Development, Mr Adekunle Lawal, confirmed the incident. He urged the contractors handling the Saki dual lane to do something about the road to avoid a repeat of the tragedy.

Investigations are likewise currently ongoing. Also, there are concerns that the incident may spark reprisal attacks by herdsmen in the vicinity.
