A Federal High Court, sitting in Lagos has restrained a former chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Lagos branch, Alhaji Musilu Akinsanya, a.k.a. MC Oluomo and seven others from collecting union dues and levies from commercial drivers that are non-union members in all motor parks in Lagos State.
The seven others are the Registered Trustees Of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW); Registered Trustees Of Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN); Registered Trustees Of Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO).
Justice Peter Lifu made the order by granting an ex parte application in a suit filed by a lawyer, Mr. Olukoya Ogungbeje, who sued for himself and a new transport union, Transport Union Society of Nigeria (TUSON).
Recall, Lagos State Government appointed Musiliu Akinsanya as the chairman of its Parks Management Committee shortly after he was sacked as the chairman of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Lagos branch by the national body.
Akinsaya was relieved of his duty for over alleged misconduct, insubordination, and inciting members of the state chapter against the apex body.
His removal was marred with violence across the state which made the Lagos state police command stationed its men in most of the affected areas.
