BUA Cement Plc says the truck involved in the Anambra accident does not belong to the company.

In a statement on Wednesday, the cement producer said it has received several online reports and a circulating video that alleged BUA Cement truck was involved in the incident.

On Tuesday, a road accident involving a truck loaded with cement occurred at Green Energy Oil and Gas filling station at Eke Awgbu in Anambra state, with reports claiming five people died.

BUA Cement expressed its condolences to the families who lost loved ones in the accident but clarified that the truck involved does not belong to BUA Cement.


“We have received numerous online reports, which were also published in the Tribune newspapers, as well as a video in circulation, linking a purported BUA Cement truck with the unfortunate accident that occurred on Agulu-Agwubu Road in the Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State,” BUA Cement said.

“While we sincerely commiserate with the families who have lost their loved ones in this accident, we intend to set the record straight as the truck in question does not belong to BUA.

“The truck involved in the accident in Anambra State on Tuesday, July 9, 2024, is not in any way a BUA Cement truck. BUA Cement trucks are marked with our logo and truck numbers.


“This applies to all BUA trucks for easy identification as standard practice by manufacturing companies that run truck services. Also, the truck involved in the report by Tribune is neither owned nor operated by BUA Cement Plc.”

According to the company, the bulk of its cement products are sold ex-factory, with customers responsible for the transportation of the cement from the plants to their intended destinations.

BUA stressed that its transport operations follow the highest safety standards and place a great emphasis on human lives.

“In a few instances where our customers desire a door-to-door service, we engage our transport and logistics arm (BUA Transport) to ensure delivery on our behalf,” the company said.


“This transport company operates with the highest safety standards and places a very high premium on human lives.

“As a responsible manufacturing company, BUA Cement Plc trains and retrains its truck drivers with the support of professional logistic bodies, including the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC).

“This is to ensure safe driving on our roads regardless of terrain whilst also ensuring the safety of other road users.

“However, if you notice any BUA Cement truck on our roads driving in a manner that endangers other road users, don’t hesitate to contact us through the following number with the truck plate number: 0803 200 5193.”


The company demanded all platforms which published the “false report” linking its truck to the accident withdraw the stories.

BUA Cement reiterated its sympathy for the families affected by the tragedy, offering prayers for their comfort and peace for the departed souls.
