Following the death of a leader of Motorcycle Operators’ Association of Lagos State (MOALS) in Oshodi, Rasaq Bello (popularly known as Hamburger),  due to violence in the area.

The lagos state government on Monday suspended activities of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, in all the seven branches in the area indefinitely.

The branches are LOB A, LOB D, LOB J, Oshodi A, Oshodi B, Oshodi C and Oshodi D. The state’s Acting Commissioner for Transportation, Prince Olanrewaju Elegushi, disclosed this during a press briefing by officials of the State, the police and NURTW inside the state Secretariat in Alausa.

Mr. Bello was shot dead in Shogunle, Lagos, during the local council primaries of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Following the incident, the police arrested the factional leaders of the NURTW and Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria, RTEAN, and their supporters causing trouble around the area.

The suspension would remain in effect until peace is restored to the area and security personnel will be mandated to oversee the transport operations within the branches.

The commissioner emphasized that any escalation of the crisis arising from the ban would lead to government taking sterner actions against the branches where violence is recorded.
