Tension erupted at the National Secretariat of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in Abuja due to a clash between two factions.
The Musiliu Akinsanya’s Lagos Parks and Management Committee, led by Tajudeen Badru Agbede, allegedly brought thugs from Lagos State to the secretariat in Garki 2.
These thugs attacked national officers, including the president, and forcibly took control of the office.
Armed policemen and Department of State Service (DSS) operatives were present but did not prevent the incident.
On another day, a group supporting Baruwa from neighboring states attempted to dislodge the rival faction but was stopped by armed security personnel at the secretariat.
