Gov. Adeleke Issues Strong Warning Against Violence In Osun Motor Parks

Governor of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke has warned transport workers’ unions in the state to desist from violence.

The state governor issued a directive to all security organisations to maintain the status quo throughout the motor parks in a statement that was signed by Olawale Rasheed, Governor Adeleke’s spokesperson.

Within the state’s transport unions, allegations of clashes between rival gangs had surfaced.

Doyin, a pregnant union employee, and a representative of the National Union Of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in Osun State are said to have been assaulted by factional union members who went berserk while attempting to seize some motorparks with cutlasses and other dangerous weapons.

In the process of the attack, it was reported by the state secretariat of the Union located at the Sadiat Hotel area of the state capital, that the Financial Secretary of the Union, Sunday Akinwale, was badly injured.

The statement partly read: “All union leaders and their supporters are hereby directed to remain calm and bring any grievances to the State Government for resolution.”

“Security agencies are consequently directly to maintain law and order.”
