Just In: 3 dead, houses burnt as NURTW officials clash with Mushin thugs

Hours after calmness returned to Idi-Oro in Mushin community following the arrest of eight suspects that engaged in wreaking havoc in the community earlier today, another fight broke out in the axis few minutes ago which led to the death of at least three persons.

During the fracas between the Alamutu Market Boys and Idi-Oro Transport Union, three persons belonging to the Alamutu group were allegedly killed while several houses razed and vehicles damaged, InsideMainland gathered.

The fight we learnt broke out after the union officers stormed the Alamutu market to collect revenue. An argument ensued which led to a major brawl in the axis between the NURTW officers and Alamutu Market boys.

The Alamutu Boys then regrouped where they launched a reprisal attack on the union boys. In their quest to hurt the NURTW boys, the Alamutu group set four houses on fire while cars were also destroyed.

“The houses that were set on fire belonged to some of the union boys,” a source told our correspondent.
