NURTW: Lagos Police Command Deploys Patrol Teams Ahead Of Pl

Lagosians have been assured to go about their daily routine without fear of disruption as the Lagos State Police Command disclosed that patrol teams have been dispatched ahead of the planned protest by members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW).

Per a Punch report, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Adekunle Ajisebutu said that he got unconfirmed reports that aggrieved members of the aforementioned union are poised to protest in strategic locations in the state.

"We cannot take chances. We have done massive deployment of police patrol teams to every nook and cranny including parks and garages in the state. There is no cause for alarm", he stated.

On Thursday, the national body of the union suspended its Lagos Chairman, Musiliu Akinsanya, a.k.a. MC Oluomo after weeks of conflict and leadership squabbles.

Oluomo thereafter announced that he had withdrawn from the union, directing his lieutenants to stop issuing NURTW tickets at parks and garages.
