Men of the Nigeria Police Force and soldiers attached to the Abuja Environmental Protection Board (AEPB) clashed in Abuja this morning.

It was gathered that the violence broke out after the security agencies tried to serve the Road Safety office in Wuze Zone 7 a violation notice.

The fracas has caused serious traffic build up around the area.

The policemen and soldiers with the AEBP officials allegedly assaulted a female Road Safety marshal in the process and confrontation ensued.

The AEPB task force members denied assaulting the Road Safety personnel, saying they were resisted from serving the Road Safety the notice they brought.

During the fight, a soldier was reportedly wounded and a civilian staff of the AEPB was “taken hostage” by the Road Safety marshals.

In turn, soldiers and policemen who were part of the AEPB team seized a Road Safety officer.

There is currently a stalemate over the release of the “hostages”, as neither party was willing to free the persons in their respective custodies first.

The Road Safety demanded that its personnel must be released first while soldiers stood their grounds that Road Safety should first release the seized civilian AEPB staff, whom they escorted to serve the notice.

AEPB’s spokesman Muktar Ibrahim, when contacted, said he was not aware of the clash.

“I have not gotten a feedback about that,” he said. “I will confirm and will let you know the full position.” (Daily Trust)
