Ogun – The Ogun State police command said it has uncovered a clandestine move by some disgruntled elements to infiltrate a particular transport union and cause breach of public peace.

Abimbola Oyeyemi, Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) for the state said in a statement made available to INDEPENDENT that the  group claimed to be a faction of one of the legally recognised transport union in the state without any legal backing.

“In view of this, the command wish to reiterate its commitment to maintain peace and order as well as protection of life and properties of the good and law abiding citizens of the State”.

Oyeyemi, an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) further stated that the transport unions that passed through the normal legislative procedure and legally recognised in the state are: National Union Of Road Transport Workers  (NURTW), Road Transport Employee Association Of Nigeria (RTEAN), Amalgamated Commercial Motorcycle Owners and Riders Association Of Nigeria  (ACOMORAN) and Articulated Motorcycle Riders Association Of Nigeria  (AMORAN).

“Anybody or group claiming to be a faction of any of the above mentioned unions with the aim of causing pandemonium in the state will face the full weight of the law” the statement warned, adding that the command therefore wishes to assure the good people of Ogun State of adequate security at all time, while going about their lawful businesses.
