Lagos State police authorities have said that a former chairman of the Ojota Motor Park caused the clash that broke out there on Thursday.
There was fear and disorderliness in the area when transport workers exchanged one another in free-for-all, wielding machetes and other dangerous weapons.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Alex Oti, said the leader, identified as Azeez Stainless, was on suspension but launched an attempt to regain control.
Oti said, “A preliminary investigation conducted into the incident revealed that the fight was engineered by one Azeez aka Stainless. He was a suspended chairman of the motor park. He has been suspended for about one year now.
“He wanted to force a comeback, taking advantage of the fact that some of the executives of the park were not around. Members on the ground resisted him and there was a fight. The police received a distress call and Divisional Police Officer, Ogudu division, led his team and brought the situation under control.”
