The Governor of Osun State, Mr Jackson Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke, has urged aggrieved leaders of the National Road Transport Union Workers in the state to channel their grievances through the appropriate quarters and not take laws into their hands.

Adeleke warned against violence among transport workers’ unions in the state.

He directed security agencies to ensure safety of lives and property within the areas affected by the protest.

NAN reports that some union members protested in Old Garage motorpark, Okefia, Olaiya and Aregbe motorparks.

The union members were said to be struggling for supremacy over who controls the motorparks.

It was gathered that rival groups blocked roads preventing easy access and scaring away pedestrians. Also security personnel have also brought the situation under control.

The city of Osogbo is said to be calm now while security agents patrol major motorparks and black-spots prone to violence.
