Following a violent altercation in the Idumota neighborhood of Lagos Island on Tuesday, the Lagos State Government has now indefinitely suspended the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) operations in the area. ayokinews.com reports
Gbenga Omotosho, the Lagos State Commissioner of Information and Strategy, announced the NURTW suspension on Tuesday.
The suspension was imposed after two of the group’s leaders, Kunle Poly and Tafa Sego, were arrested after being linked to the violent confrontation on Lagos Island last week.
On Thursday, two people were allegedly murdered in a battle between two factions of the transport union in Lagos’ Idumota neighborhood.
However, the NURTW’s Lagos State branch has apologized to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu over the fatal clash which led to the wanton destruction of lives and properties.
