Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has suspended all activities of the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria in the state.

This was made known by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, Sola Giwa, on Thursday.

He noted that the suspension has become imperative following some pockets of violence recorded in Ojo and Lagos Island on Wednesday, adding that a 35- Man Caretaker Committee has been constituted to take over activities of the union henceforth.

“In a bid to fulfill one of the cardinal objectives of the T.H.E.M.E.S developmental agenda of the present administration in Lagos State as it relates to Security and Good Governance, under Traffic Management and Transportation, the Lagos State Government has suspended all activities of RTEAN with immediate effect,” Giwa said.

Recall on Wednesday that two persons were feared killed during a clash involving factional members of RTEAN in the Iyana Iba and Lagos Island areas of Lagos State.

During the clash on Wednesday, the transport union members were seen in a trending video clip engaging themselves in a free-for-all.

In the video clip posted by Goldmyne TV on Instagram, the transport union workers were seen fighting themselves with stones, bottles, cutlasses, and other dangerous weapons.
