The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) has raised an alarm over a plot by some persons and groups to stage a protest at the National Secretariat of the union located in  Abuja

The union disclosed this on Wednesday in a statement issued by the President of the Union, Alhaji Tajudeen Ibikunle Baruwa, in Abuja.

He described the planned protest as a campaign of calumny against the leadership of the union aimed at causing confusion and foment trouble.

He said they have identified those sponsoring the protest and that they are not even members of the union but Lagos, Osun, and Ondo States Park Management Committees.

Baruwa said their plan is to infiltrate their ranks by wearing the union uniform and disguising as members to perpetrate their nefarious activities and attack the Secretariat

According to the NURTW President, “We have it on good authority that some disgruntled and unscrupulous elements have perfected a plan to mobilize some thugs and hoodlums from Lagos who are put uniform of the Union as a disguise to invade and stage a protest at our National Secretariat here in Abuja.

” I want to tell you that these people are not our members, they just want to cause violence in the Federal Capital Territory ( FCT ). We are using this medium to call on security agencies to rise up to the occasion and prevent the breakdown of law and order.

” The union has remained peaceful over the years, and we don’t have any faction. We know those people that are sponsoring these groups, and we are using this opportunity to stay clear of FCT in their own interest”

Baruwa, therefore, called on the plotters to desist forthwith just as he called on all the security agencies to rise up to the occasion and prevent possible breakdown of law and order in the city.

 He said the union has remained peaceful over the years without any rancor but wondered how some people would just wake up to cause violence and puncture the serene atmosphere in the nation’s capital.
