The Police Command in Lagos State on Saturday said that its men arrested some members of the National Union of Transport Workers ( NURTW) during a clash between them on Lagos Island on Friday.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) , CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Saturday.
Ajisebutu, however, did not mention how many people were arrested and where they were being detained.
He added that normalcy had returned to the Island as more operatives had been deployed there.
“The police have quelled the crisis. Sufficient facilities were deployed in the area immediately we received a distress call and normalcy was restored.
”Investigation into the crisis is ongoing,” he said.
NAN reports that two factions of the NURTW clashed over the control of some motor parks on the Island on Friday.
The videos of the clash went viral on Friday showing the hoodlums using dangerous weapons against themselves.
