lagos—There was pandemonium in Mushin area of Lagos State, as factions of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, were engaged in violent clash destroying several vehicles, four persons were injured.
This is coming as residents of Idi-Oro, axis of Mushin have called on the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, to ensure that the four suspects arrested with an AK 47 rifle belonging to a deceased policeman and a pump action gun were prosecuted. The suspects, Identified as Rasheed Adeshina, aka, Action, Salami Rauf, Waheed Oseni and Azeez gbadamosi, were arrested recently when operatives, at the D9 Section of the State Criminal Investigations Department, SCID, Panti, Yaba, raided a bakery where the suspects kept the rifles.
Vanguard had reported that the suspects were members of a faction of the NURTW, involved in a protracted bloody war of supremacy between factions of the NURTW in Mushin, which led to the death of several persons, while properties, worth millions have been destroyed.
The residents, however, urged the police boss to spread his drag net and apprehend those who procured guns for the suspects.
Taiwo Alade, who spoke with Vanguard said; “The police needs to arrest the people backing these boys if they want lasting peace in Mushin. These boys have given the police the names of the people and the police know them very well. In fact, I saw No Case, who they said bought the Ak47 rifle and the pump action gun for them, walking freely in Mushin and I wonder why he has not been arrested to tell the police how a police rifle was found in possession of his boys.
”This is a serious issue.” Meanwhile, Vanguard gathered that yesterday’s clash in Mushin, began when hoodlums loyal to one Illesami and Wasiu Oloriesho, controlling the Idi-Oro axis of the Agege Motor Road, allegedly attacked their rivals at Mushin Bus Stop, led by one Ike and Akeem Aganran, also known as No Case.
