A Motor Park in Ogun State
A Motor Park in Ogun State

Hoodlums led by one Lateef Toriola yesterday invaded two motor parks in Kuto, and Ita-Oshin, in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, leaving seven people critically injured and 20 vehicles destroyed.

Security agencies including, Department of State Security, DSS; Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, and the Police in the state have arrested about 14 persons in connection with the attack.

The crisis it was gathered started as a result of the alleged plan by a faction of the Road Transport Employers’ Association, RTEAN, in the state led by Toriola, to take over the parks.

Chairman of RTEAN, Mugisu Akinpelu, while narrating the ordeals of his members in both motor parks, said seven persons sustained injuries at Kuto motor park but no one was attacked at Ita-Oshin park.

He therefore appealed to the government to come to their aid, adding that the ring leader of the hoodlums, Toriola had been barred from parading himself as either a member or chairman of the union.

Heavy presence of policemen was noticed at Kuto Motor Park shortly after the attack, while the injured were reportedly rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, Idi-Aba Abeokuta.
