Under the leadership of the Council for Marine Truck Unions and Associations, truckers working in the country’s maritime business have written to the governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, regarding four members who have gone missing.
The group claimed that on Tuesday, in a letter titled “Illegal Possession of Firearms, Suspected Murder, Kidnapping, Vandalism of Property and Breakdown of Law and Order,” and signed by Muideen Olapade, vice president of operations at COMTUA, some of their members had been attacked by thugs who they believed to be ECOMOG boys at Mile 2.
They said that members of the association were attacked by thugs brandishing illegal weapons such as firearms, cutlasses, charms, and various types of illicit ammunition, inflicting severe injuries on some of the members while still missing four others.
The organization claimed that the thugs continued to attack their members while defiling the presence of Nigerian Police Force officials.
They pleaded with the governor to act quickly and within the scope of his authority to help them and restore order by using the strong arm of the law against these thugs.
