One person was shot as transport union factions clash in Lagos

According to Vanguard: A yet-to-be-identified person was, yesterday, shot and feared killed after two factions of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, clashed at Oshodi over chairmanship tussle.

Vanguard gathered that the person, a member of the transport union, was shot at the entrance of Brown Street, where the fight started with his remains still lying at the scene at press time. The fracas spread to other axes of Oshodi.

A resident, Mrs. Olatunbosun, said: “I do not know when the clash started. But when I arrived here this morning (yesterday), I saw the corpse of a man at the entrance of Brown Street. “I was told this was where the fight started. I do not know who the person is.”

It was learned that Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, was at the scene earlier, directing that an Armoured Personnel Carrier, APC, and a patrol vehicle be stationed at the scene to forestall an escalation of the crisis.
