BREAKING: Two Feared Dead As NURTW, Shop Owners Clash In Oyo


Two people were confirmed killed on Wednesday when men of the Oyo State Park Management System under the leadership of Mr Mukaila Lamidi (also known as Auxiliary) allegedly attacked some shop owners in Iwo Road area of Ibadan, the Oyo state capital city on Wednesday.

The attack on the shop owners was said to be in continuation of an earlier attack and a counter attack between the Auxilliary PMS boys and members of the proscribed National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) on Tuesday.

Two persons were said to have died from the PMS and banned NURTW camps on Tuesday.

One of the sources informed our reporter that a son of the owner of the shopping complex in Iwo-road who was allegedly killed was coming to park his car in the front of his mother’s complex but some members of the defunct NURTW had already parked their vehicles at the parking lot.

The source hinted that a brawl ensued following a hot altercation between the tenants in the complex and the members of NURTW, a development, which degenerated into violent chaos, forcing many shop owners and traders to flee the scene.


Members of the defunct NURTW were said to have later regrouped and launch a fresh attack on the shopping complex with dangerous weapons.

In the ensuing melee, one person and the son of the complex owner were killed.

The suspected PMS boys stormed the Baba Onilu area of Iwo Road, attacking the shops where phones were being sold.

They were said to have unleashed terror on the phone sellers and shop owners destroying kiosk, show glasses and items.

One member of the NURTW was said to have been killed in the process while many others suffered varying degrees of injuries.

A son of one of the shop owners, simply identified as Ahmed, was said to have been killed in an effort to identify those fomenting trouble in the property.
