Ashaimanonline.com camera captured three boys stealing fuel from parked trucks at Tema Industrial area in the wee hours of Thursday [27/07/2017].
These boys were seen illegally transferring fuel from vehicles parked at a truck yard close to Zenith Bank Tema main at the Industrial area. They used tubes connected to the fuel tank of the trucks to transfer the fuel into gallons.
According to sources, this criminal act has been going on for a very long time unnoticed by the truck owners. It is said people, who ply their trade around, see the act ongoing but keep mute for fear of being attacked or abused by the culprits. The act is often carried out at midnight, dawn or early morning when less people or no one is around.
An eye witness who spoke on anonymity said “Stealing of fuel from trucks here is nothing new. In fact, it is an acceptable culture. People do it often and they are not caught, so who are you to go and report? You will be ostracized if you ever attempt.
You might even be manhandled and if care is not taken your life will be at risk.
Those who do this, often pretend to be checking something on the vehicles in order not to attract the attention of passersby and then quickly connect the tubes from the fuel tank into gallons to transfer the fuel and the sell them.
They sell the fuel to the ‘belebele boys’ (boys who sell fuel in gallons and/or containers at road sides to trotro and taxi drivers).”
“Most of the time, some of the drivers and mates of the trucks are involved in this criminal act and it is the truck owners who suffer the lost at the end”, He added.
How long is this criminal act going to exist without anyone bravely opposing it?
What is our society turning into?
