The national leadership of Road Transport Workers Union has suspended one of the union’s factional leaders in Lagos, Azeez Lawal, popularly called Kunle Poly. It also resolved to set up a committee that will investigate the immediate and remote causes of the recent disruption of the All Progressives’ Congress rally in Lagos.
Kunle Poly is allegedly responsible for last week’s disruption of the rally by the APC in Ikeja and the stabbing of Musiliu Akinsanya, known famously as MC Olu Omo.
NURTW President, Najeem Yasin, announced the suspension of the union official after a five-hour meeting with the Lagos state Executive and elders of the union.
The union says it is apolitical and enjoins political parties not to use its members as weapons of destruction, particularly as elections draw near.
