Blood Flows As Okada Groups Clash In Agbado

Published

on

recently
when officials of Amalgamated Commercial Motorcycle Owners and Riders
Association of Nigeria, ACCOMORAN, brutalised members of Motorcycle Owners and
Riders Association of Nigeria, ANACOWA, under Accredited Motorcycle Owners and
Riders Association of Nigeria, AMORAN, over hike in price of tickets in Agbado
park.

According
to the state treasurer, Comrade Salaudeen Amoo, trouble started when tickets
that were issued to ANACOWA members by executives of Accomoran which was N230
per leaflet suddenly without notice increased to N260 on the order of their
state chairman, Samson Apelogun a.k.a All rounder.

“This
development, our members viewed as outrageous, more so, we were not officially
informed,” he said.

Amoo
further said there was a hot argument with the riders who insisted that they
should revert to the old price of N230.

The
duo of Kola and Bondis, according to Amoran state treasurer, branch chairmen of
branches 2 and 4 of Agbado parks of Accomoran, became infuriated by the
effrontery of their members to flout the state chairman’s directives and went to
report to their boss. “The chairman instantly mobilised hoodlums to unleash
mayhem on our members,” he said.

In
the ensuing fracas, three persons, Messrs Ogundare Jide, Wale Adetosoye and
Afisu, all member of Anacowa under Amoran were battered with clubs and
machetes.

“We
reported the matter at Agbado Police Station where the Divisional Police
Officer, DPO, Mr. Abayomi, gave us a written note to take the injured members to
hospital for treatment and ordered his men to arrest the suspects.

“However,
to our surprise, the two arrested suspects, Kola and Bondu, were released on
bail and are now roaming the park freely. We feel that the DPO has been
compromised by the state chairman of Accomoran to release his boys,” he
said,

Efforts
by P.M.NEWS to speak with the IPO, Corporal Olatunde, proved abortive.

The
DPO, in his response, said investigation is still on to ascertain what was the
actual cause of the crisis and probably re-arrest the said suspects.

However,
Comrade Ade Ikuesan, the National chairman of ANACOWA, whose three members were
wounded said that one of the injured victims has been confirmed blind by
doctors. This, he said, was as a result of the dip cut on his neck which has
affected the inner vein.
He,
therefore, appealed to Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, to quickly
intervene in the matter so as to avert further bloodshed, adding; “We want
justice to be done on this matter as we are ready to resist any attempt by
whosoever wants to sweep the matter under the carpet, We want the matter to be
charged to court.”
The
chairman of Amoran Ogun State, Alhaji Nurudeen Shogeyinbo, also wants the Ogun
State government and its officials in charge of revenue collection to
investigate the amount which, he claimed, they paid to the office of the
director of parks and garages to provide tickets for ANACOWA members which was
never done.
