A clash between Jigawa Command of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) and members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), has left a bystander dead and others injured.
An operative of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, on Friday, went berserk, killing a bystander and injuring a Police sergeant in Dutse, the capital of Jigawa State.
The incident occurred when Jigawa Command of the Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, sought reinforcement from the NSCDC personnel after clash with members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW.
Sources said NURTW touts descended on the FRSC officials, set ablaze their operational van, following impounding of some of their vehicles for failure to install speed limiters.
“As soon as the Civil Defence officers arrived at the scene, they began beating everybody around. One of them started shooting despite the fact that the police asked him not to. He shot dead of the bystanders and a police sergeant,” said a witness.
