BREAKING: Gunshots as two NURTW factions clash in Agbado, Lagos

Two factions of the National Union of Road Transport Workers clashed in the Agbado area of the Alimosho Local Government Area in Lagos State on Friday morning.

Road users and passersby scampered for safety as gunshots were heard.

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

He, however, confirmed 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.”

Lagos Government had in January suspended NURTW operations in the Idumota area of Lagos Island following the violent clash recorded in the area.

NURTW members in Lagos led by Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo, have been involved in deadly clashes of late.
