NURTW Chairman has been caught with guns, cutlasses, and Indian hemp ahead of Osun Election 2022.

Newsone reports that soldiers deployed for the Osun governorship election have arrested Kazeem Oyewale, the Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Oroki Branch, in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.

This online news platform understands that the NURTW Chairman, notoriously known as Asiri Eniba, was arrested alongside some armed political hoodlums at Ojurin motor park, Old Garage, Osogbo, on Friday.

Newsone Nigeria gathered that NURTW Chairman was immediately handed over to the police.

Some residents of Osogbo who witnessed the arrest said that Mr Oyewale and the thugs were caught with two guns, cutlasses and Indian hemp.

According to the residents, the soldiers fired several warning gunshots into the air when some other thugs wanted to attack them.

One of the eye witnesses who did not want his name mentioned said: “The soldiers came with a hilux and one hummer bus. They went straight to where Asiri and his boys were. The soldiers took strategic position and surrounded the building where Asiri and his boys were.

“Some of them went inside and we were hearing noises. They later marched out Asiri and like five of his boys. Two of the boys were with guns.

“When the soldiers were matching them into the bus, some thugs were throwing stones at the soldiers and that forced them to be shooting sporadically. The gunshots were much,” he added.

A report monitored on Peoples Gazette by Newsone Nigeria quoted a security source to have said that the NURTW Chairman and his boys have been behind several violent attacks in the state ahead of the election.

Meanwhile, as at the time of this report, Newsone Nigeria reports that NURTW Chairman and the other arrested thugs were being paraded at the Nigerian Police Headquarters in Osogbo.
