by Whitney Omoh

Following the ongoing power tussle between members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Lagos State Branch led by its Chairman, Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya popularly known as MC Oluomo and another top shot, Azeez Adekunle better known as Kunle Poly, the duo has signed a peace accord to end the war.

The agreement was reached last Friday, January 17, 2020, in the presence of the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu and his team.

Recall that there has been an ongoing crisis between factions in the Union involving Kunle Poly and Mustapha Adekunle AKA Sego and some other members loyal to MC Oluomo. They were made to sign peace bond to ensure there is no reoccurrence of such ugly incident.

Commenting during the signing, Kunle Poly said; “I don’t have much to say, I am a law-abiding citizen, my State Chairman is here and am ready to abide by the state chairman’s directive.”

On his part, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police stressed that; “Our duties are to protect life and properties. When these incidents are ongoing, we did our underground research. In the course of our investigations, we discovered that NURTW Lagos Island branch is the one fighting.

“Investigation further revealed that the fight is between the two strong leaders in that area. The crisis was caused by the National Union of Road Transport Workers, Lagos Island branch, and investigation revealed further is between the strong leaders in that area. It is believed that Unionism should guided by the rule of law and regulations. That is why we were able to invite State of the Union.”

In his remarks, the Chairman, Lagos State National Union of Road Transport Workers, Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo said that, he reported the actions of the factional leaders immediately he realised they were attempting to destroy his administration.

“I reported them when they are trying to destroy my Chairmanship. It’s the Lagos Island two leaders’ boys that are fighting for supremacy. The boys are fighting themselves.

The Lagos State government does not want miscreants hiding under the leadership of NURTW.”

He added that; “I am using this medium to tell the Commissioner that I am ready to cooperate with him because I don’t want anything to damage my tenure, because what I want is peace.”
