Ondo Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has ordered indefinite suspension of activities of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in the state.
He directed all NURTW members to immediately vacate all motor parks across the state.
The Governor had last week said the suspension of NURTW and RTEAN activities in motor parks would only last for two weeks.
Akeredolu, who spoke on Tuesday through his Senior Special Assistant on Special Duties and strategy, Dr Doyin Odebowale, said the indefinite suspension would not affect RTEAN.
Akeredolu said the decision to suspend NURTW activities indefinitely was based on the unruly and uncultured behaviour of the union leaders. He said the violent attacks on members and the innocent citizens were unacceptable.
The Punch reported that there was pandemonium at Oja Oba Area of Akure, the capital of Ondo State on Tuesday morning as members of the state chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers engaged in free for all.
This came barely 48 hours after the factional unionists fought at the Owode area of the state, causing injuries to many people.
On Tuesday, it was gathered that the residents and traders in the popular Oba Adesida Road had to run for their lives while the business activities were paralysed when the armed unionists attacked each other.
Some vehicles were also vandalised by the fighters.
