NURTW activities suspended indefinitely in Ondo over clashes


Following the clashes between rival groups of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, in Akure on Tuesday morning, the activities of the union have been suspended indefinitely across Ondo State.

Disclosing this to newsmen, the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Special Duties and Strategy, Doyin Odebowale, said the government had ordered NURTW members to immediately vacate all motor parks in the state.

Odebowale explained that the move became imperative following what the government observed as unruly and uncultured behaviour of the union leaders.

Recall that on Tuesday morning, there was pandemonium within Akure metropolis during the violent attack on some members of the union by a rival group which resulted in the killing of one person with many injured.

Meanwhile, the government exempted members of RTEAN from the indefinite suspension for comporting themselves peacefully.

Earlier, the activities of NURTW and RTEAN were suspended for two weeks by the state government over imminent power tussles among the union leaders.
