Residents In Kaduna Block BUA Company Truck, Loot Noodles Amid Allegations Of Price Hikes

In an incident in Zaria, Kaduna State, on Friday, some residents took advantage of their grievances towards alleged price hikes by BUA company and blocked a moving truck carrying foodstuffs. 

The situation escalated when a group of youths, claiming the company was among those raising prices without considering citizens’ financial hardships, intercepted the truck in the Dogarawa area.

Confirming the incident, a resident informed SaharaReporters about the looting of numerous noodle cartoons from the BUA company’s truck. 

The residents saw this as an opportunity to acquire essential food items, rushing to seize the loaded noodles.

Despite attempts to seek clarification on the matter, the Kaduna State Police Spokesman, Mohammad Jalagie, remained unresponsive to calls and text messages.

This event follows earlier reports of inmates protesting at a Correctional Centre in Jos, Plateau State, due to a proposed reduction in their food ration. The inmates began expressing their discontent immediately after learning about the planned decrease on Friday.
