The Lagos State Government has announced the immediate suspension of the activities of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Lagos Island Chapter indefinitely.

The state government made the proclamation on Tuesday at the end of the state’s Security Council meeting held at the Lagos House, Alausa in Ikeja.

The state’s Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, who made this known at the completion of the Security Council meeting said the decision is aimed at forestalling any further breakdown of law and order and ensure that the peace in the area is not hampered.

Edgal urged members of the NURTW in Lagos Island to comply with the directive. He added that the government would not hesitate to totally proscribe all union activities if members continue to disturb the peace in the area.

“In view of the crisis rocking the NURTW chapter of the Lagos Island and the insecurity it is creating on the Island, the Security Council meeting today chaired by the State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has ordered that union activities be suspended on the Island until further notice.

“We are also using the opportunity to call on NURTW leadership in the state that nobody or group of persons, organisations would be allowed to tamper with the peaceful security situation in Lagos State and that the government would not hesitate to proscribe completely all union activities in the state if their members do not obey the laws of the land and ensure that their activities do not amount to breaching the peace,” Edgal said.

While thanking Lagosians for their support in keeping the peace in the state last year, the Commissioner of Police said the Command under his leadership has began series of Town Hall meetings across the state to set the tone for policing in 2018 and inform residents on the need to take interest in knowing what is happening in and around their neighbourhood.

“In all the town hall meetings, the message has been the same. We have launched ‘Operation Know Your Neighbour’. Knowing our neighbour is a vital aspect of community policing and community safety partnership and that aspect will improve neighbourhood security where at least we get to know what our neighbours do and we would be able to report any wrong doing.

“We are expected that wherever we are, either in our homes, in our churches, mosques, business premises, offices, we are expected to know who our neighbour is and what our neighbour does and if there is anything suspicious or untoward, we are expected to pass information quickly to the police in line with community policing,” the Police Commissioner said.
