The Lagos State Police Command says it has arrested 14 persons in connection with the violence that broke out at the flag-off campaign rally of the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos, APC.
The State Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, said after reviewing the video of the violence, the police found out that the rally was disrupted by members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW.
This, he said has further been confirmed by preliminary investigations.
Imohimi, disclosed that some the suspects, who were hired, were arrested around the Millennium Housing Estate and have been giving useful information to the police.
“Around the Millennium Housing Estate, and the area around the bridge, we arrested 14 suspects. Some of them have given us useful information.
“The preliminary investigation we carried out reveals that it is just their internal union crisis. I heard that their state chairman would leave soon and there are some players who wanted to succeed him.
