Hardship: Hoodlums Make Off with Truckload of Spaghetti in Zaria



In a daring daylight raid, brazen hoodlums targeted a BUA truck loaded with tantalizing cartons of spaghetti at the Dogarawa axis of the Zaria-Kano expressway.

The incident, unfolding at 3:15 pm, shocked bystanders as the culprits swiftly plundered the entire cargo of spaghetti, leaving nothing behind. Eyewitnesses recount the driver had momentarily parked the truck for prayers, providing an opportunistic window for the thieves to pounce.

This harrowing event follows hot on the heels of a similar attack just a week ago, where trailers laden with vital food supplies were seized in Suleja, Niger State.
However, amidst the chaos, a glimmer of hope emerged as a dedicated police team swiftly intervened, apprehending five suspects linked to the crime.

One eyewitness, a seasoned trader of over a decade in the area, lamented the unprecedented nature of the incident, emphasizing the loss as ‘unfortunate and regrettable.’
With not a single carton spared, the spaghetti heist serves as a stark reminder of the growing challenges faced amid widespread hardship in the country.”
