Gunshots As Two Factions Of NURTW Clash In Lagos


Two factions of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) on Friday clashed in Agbado, Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos State.

Road users and passers-by ran for safety as gunshots rent the air.

Spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, Adekunle Ajisebutu, said the conflict was over ticket collection at the parks.

He, however, confirmed that policemen have been deployed in the affected areas.

Ajisebutu said: “It was a brewing conflict over ticketing that would have led to a violent confrontation/crisis between two factions of NURTW in Kola Bus Stop area and its environs.

“Police patrol teams from Alakuko, Agbado, Ijaiye- Ojokoro and reinforcements from the headquarters have been deployed to the area on the order of the Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi.

“The place is calm. No threat to lives and property currently as the police are still maintaining their presence in the area.”
