The Dangote Group has disowned a truck conveying petroleum product, which was involved in a fatal crash that claimed several lives in Ogun State.

The said truck actually belongs to Olam International Ltd., which acquired Dangote Flour in 2019.  

The truck, allegedly bearing the logo of Dangote Flour was involved in an accident in Ogun State.

However, the Group Chief Branding & Communication Officer (GCBCO), Anthony Chiejina, in a statement on Friday, said contrary to a report by the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), the said truck does not belong to the Dangote Group.

The statement also reads: “It should be noted that Olam International Ltd, makers of Crown Flour products, acquired Dangote Flour in 2019, in a widely publicized deal. The company now fully belongs to Olam.

“The loss of lives in this instance is regrettable and saddening. The public is advised to take note of this clarification.”
