The Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN ) has narrated how members of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) unleashed terror on their members at Obalende in Lagos last Monday.
The group said seven of its members were brutalised with varying degrees of injuries and six vehicles vandalised.
In a statement issued on Saturday in Abuja by the National President of the Association, Musa Muhammed Maitakobi, said members of NURTW violently stormed their base and took over two motor parks under their control.
The statement added that the comment made by the Chairman of NURTW in Lagos, Alhaji Akinsanya (MC-Oluomo), alleging that members of RTEAN at Obalende in Lagos attacked their members was aimed at burying and concealing the truth. The statement read “Our attention has been drawn to publications in some newspapers quoting Chairman of NURTW in Lagos, Alhaji Akinsanya (MC-Oluomo) alleging that members of RTEAN at Obalende in Lagos attacked their members. We deem this as false statement, lies and conceited with the intention to bury the atrocities meted against our members, which resulted to the injuries of seven people and destruction of six vehicles.” (Independent)
