In a courageous yet tragic effort to transport crucial food supplies from Niger, a Ghanaian driver fell victim to suspected terrorists in the midst of a challenging security situation. The assailants, believed to be terrorists, not only attacked the convoy but also set multiple trucks ablaze, further escalating the harrowing ordeal.
The unfortunate incident unfolded as a group of drivers, including the Ghanaian victim, embarked on a perilous journey through the Burkina Faso route to deliver essential food items to Ghana. The decision to take this route was prompted by the closure of Niger’s borders following a military coup, causing tensions with the ECOWAS regional bloc.
Reports from Joy News reveal that the drivers, after waiting in vain for security escorts, attempted to proceed beyond the Burkina Faso border independently. Tragically, before they could ensure safe passage, terrorists launched a violent attack on the convoy, resulting in the destruction of approximately four trucks.
