According to The Nation, the seedy Ijebu-Igbo, the Headquarters of Ijebu North Local Government Area of Ogun State, boils on Monday morning following a pre-dawn killing of a member of the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria( RTEAN ) identified as Seyi.

Angry residents and transporters as a early 7:am bunched up at the popular Station road junction, spilled into adjoining roads and shut down all activities in protest over the death of Seyi even as a detachment of policemen from Ijebu – Igbo Divisional Police Headquarters battled to contain the situation from drifting into lawlessness.

Seyi who was confirmed dead around 4:am today was said to have been knocked down by hit and run vehicle around 2:am while loading his vehicle for a trip to Lagos, a source in Ijebu – Igbo, confided in The Nation.

The source added that as Seyi writhed in pains on the road, more vehicles ran over him many times until some parts of his body were kneaded to pulps, fuelling rage among members of RTEAN and some residents.

But the Police Public Relations Officer in Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, told The Nation that the transport union officials usually go to where people sell animals’ skin(ponmo) to collect revenue and that it was while a member of RTEAN was trying to collect revenue that a vehicle conveying ponmo knocked him down and the victim died.

Abimbola, an Assistant Superintendent of Police(ASP), said the disturbance in the town is the work of RTEAN members who are agitated over the death of their colleague but added that the Police have since taken over the area and restored peace.
