NURTW member stabs vice chairman for dating his girlfriend

Doctors at the General Hospital, Shomolu, Lagos, are battling to save the life of the Vice Chairman, National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Palm Grove branch, who was allegedly stabbed by one of his members on Tuesday night over a girlfriend.

Two suspects, Ayodele Muyiwa and James Friday, alleged to have carried out the attack, have been arrested by police and are still being detained at Shomolu Division.

It was gathered that the main suspect, Ayodele Muywa, has been having a brawl with the victim, identified simply as Omotunde, whom he accused of snatching his girlfriend.

A member of the union, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: “When Muyiwa came to the park on Tuesday, he engaged Omotunde in a quarrel, accusing him of snatching his girlfriend to spite him because he was rich.

“They started exchanging words. In the process, Muyiwa carried a plank with which he threatened to hit Omotunde. He bent down and dared Muyiwa to carry out his threat, but he did not.

“At night, Muyiwa stormed the park in the company of another person to attack Omotunde. They beat him, stabbed him in the stomach and left.”

As at yesterday, some loyalists of the injured man were spoiling for a fight. Vanguard gathered that to prevent a free-for-all, loyalists to the suspects were prevented from collecting tolls at the park.

Preliminary investigation, according to police sources, revealed that the main suspect had earlier been arrested for being in possession of a gun during the union’s election.

He was reportedly taken to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, SCIID, Yaba, but was later released.

Confirming the incident, spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, Olarinde Famous-Cole, said investigation had commenced.

The most senseless thing is to die or kill because of a woman, who will split on your grave yard after your demise.
