Ondo State Government may consider

serious sanctions against members of

the National Union of Road Transport

Workers (NURTW) for breaking the

peace during an attack on members of

the Road Transport Employers Association

of Nigeria (RTEAN.

The NURTW members had on

Wednesday engaged in a free for all with

the RTEAN over a space for a motor

park approved for RTEAN leadership in

Akure, the state capital. The fracas led to

destruction of vehicles and structures

on the contentious motor park leaving

many with injuries. The swift intervention

of men of the Nigeria Police Force

however brought the situation under

But the NURTW members later

regrouped and embarked on a protest

to the Office of the Governor where

security agents prevented them from

gaining entry.

Chairman, Taxi Drivers in the state,

Ojo Adewole who led the demonstration

accused the state government

particularly, the Commissioner for Transport,

Mr. Nicholas Tofowomo of bias

in the allocation of the motor park to

RTEAN. Ojo alleged the commissioner

collected N5m bribe from the RTEAN

for the space he claimed was originally

occupied by NURTW members.
