Written by anitaadims

Gunshots were heard on Monday April 26th, as Members of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and Okada riders clashed around Iyana Oba market which is few meters away from Lagos state university.

Eyewitnesses said what started with throwing of stones aggravated to gunshots and wielding of dangerous weapons as security agents made efforts to calm the scene.

The clash began with the alleged beating and killing of an Hausa motorcyclist by the NURTW officials resulting from incessant harassment and rising dues they face from road transport unionists.

According to witnesses, Hausa motorcyclists subsequently gathered to protest this alleged ill-treatment which led to a full-blown chaos in the area.

Videos of the incident were circulated on different social media platforms.

The crisis has forced the management of LASU to close the gates of the school as students and staff have been urged to remain within the premises.
