Video shows murder of Arikuyeri, Lagos NURTW Mile 12 chairman


Arikuyeri, an official of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in Lagos, has been murdered.


Real name Sulaimon Onaolapo, the deceased was the NURTW chairman in Mile 12.


In a trending video, Arikuyeri is seen on the ground as some young men repeatedly hit his body and smash his head.


He had been chased to the spot after hours of fighting that resulted in the use of guns, machetes and other dangerous weapons.


It was gathered that a lingering disagreement over the leadership of the motor park degenerated on Sunday.


Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin confirmed the incident and assured that normalcy has been restored by operatives.


But tension has enveloped the area amid fears of reprisal attacks by warring factions and Onaolapo’s supporters.


Ironically, the meaning of Arikuyeri, a Yoruba word, is “one who sees death and avoids it”.
