There was violence in Abuja on Wednesday when a fight broke between soldiers, policemen and a female Road Safety marshal.

It was learnt that the soldiers and policemen were attached to the Abuja Environmental Protection Board (AEPB).

The fight, according to reports, broke when a violation notice was to be served at the Road Safety office in Wuze Zone 7.

In a bid to resist the delivery of the violation notice, a civilian staff of the AEPB was reported held hostage by the Road Safety marshals.

It was learnt that a soldier was also wounded.

The soldiers and policemen who were part of the AEPB team seized a Road Safety officer, in retaliation.

This however led to pandemonium as none of the parties was willing to release the officer held hostage.
