A leader of the National Road Transports Workers has been shot dead in Lagos following violence that erupted during an APC primary.
A top shot of the National Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and politician, Rasaq Bello, popularly called Hamburger, has been shot dead by suspected rival gang members during the primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Lagos State.
The State Police Command in a statement, said Bello who was the treasurer of the Lagos State Treasurer of Tricycle Operators, a branch of NURTW, was murdered in the Shogunle area of Oshodi on Monday, May 29, 2017, when violence broke out at the venue of the primary at Shogunle town hall.
It was gathered that the late Bello was allegedly shot dead by members of a rival gang allegedly led by one Samson Agbetoye, also known as Golden.
The death of Hamburger who was recently installed as the Akinrogun of Shogunle, led to violent clashes in the area as cars were burnt by his supporter who also stormed the home of Golden and allegedly killed his aged mother when he was nowhere to be found.
After the disturbances which also saw the closure of the popular Ladipo Market, police were drafted in to ensure peace is returned to the area while the command has also vowed to bring the leader of the killer gang to book.
