    What is this kind of action called….truck jacking or truck napping ? How can anybody even think of stealing something as visible as a petrol tanker when the intent to steal usually involves hiding the stolen product? Or is this also an aspect of persons, albeit thieves, having their own area of specialization as truck robbers?
    Oh Naija, even our crimes are different. Na wa!
