BEVERLY HILLS, February 11, (THEWILL) – Rival factions of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), today shot sporadically as they clashed in the Obalende area of Lagos State.
The clash, which started around 8am, led to panic in the area as motorists, passengers and passersby scampered for safety.
“Avoid Obalende right now. Thugs are heavily armed with guns shooting here and there,” a Twitter user @DE_COMMUNICATOR, warned.
Another user @AbassOyeyemi said, “Insecurity in Lagos has skyrocketed. Especially on the Island. Crazy shooting by NURTW guys going on at Obalende. This is just after about four days of shootings at Adeniji Adele. Thank God for life.”
The Complaint Response Unit of the Nigeria Police Force which responded to the video, said, “DPOs and other policemen are on ground addressing the situation. Thank you for contacting NPF-CRU.”
