Warri Shooting: Group Seeks Prosecution Of NURTW Members, Sponsors

Centre for the Vulnerable and Underprivileged, CENTREP, Warri Delta State, has called on the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Alkali Usman, to arrest and put on trial, members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, Uvwie chapter, who shot and injured two police officers, last week, as well as their sponsors.

CENTREP in a statement by its Executive Director, Mr. Oghenejabor Ikimi, said that some NURTW members, who were protesting the emergence of one Ariyo Francis as chairman, caused mayhem in Effurun, as they not only shot an Assistant Superintendent of Police and Sergeant, but assaulted and manhandled innocent commuters and commercial drivers.

He said: “We condemn same as pure evil and call on the Delta State Commissioner of Police, Usman to immediately ensure that all the persons and sponsors of the above mayhem are arrested and prosecuted in our law courts to serve as a deterrent to other members and their would- be sponsors.” (Vanguard)
