NURTW chieftain, Mustapha Adekunle aka Siego has been declared wanted by the Lagos State Police Command for attempting to disrupt the APC rally held at Skypower Ground, Ikeja, on January 8, 2019.
The said Mustapha Adekunle aka Seigo, an NURTW chieftain, came to the rally with a group of people and were identified at the entrance as supporters of the party .
However, at the tail end of the event, Seigo and his group for a reason yet to be determined, violently engaged other supporters of the party. In the ensuing melee, one MC Oluomo, another NURTW chieftain, was stabbed and was rushed to EKO Hospital where he is currently recuperating while two other victims of the attack were taken to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital for treatment.
The crisis was quickly contained by policemen at the venue.
It will be recalled that a few hours before the rally started, the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, held a meeting with the leaders of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW ), Road Transportation Employers Association and other affiliate groups where all the parties agreed to eschew violence before, during and after the electioneering.
It was therefore surprising that a prominent member of NURTW would attempt to violently disrupt a peaceful political rally.
Meanwhile, two persons have been arrested in connection with the incident.
