Two members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW in Ondo State have sustained matchet injuries as the leadership tussle in the union turned bloody.
It was gathered that two members belonging to one of the factions in the union were reportedly attacked by members loyal to the suspended leaders of the union.
The state government had last week suspended NURTW and the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) over security concerns.
Government intervention became necessary in order to forestall possible break down of law and order.
But two members of a faction, Omoniyi Oni popularly known as Eniba, and Wasiu Ibrahim were attacked in Akure, the state capital by thugs loyal to the former leadership of the union.
They were reportedly attacked at a barbing salon around Owode in Akure metropolis.
Narrating their ordeal, Omoniyi said that their attackers waylaid them and attacked them with dangerous weapons.
He said some of them sustained varying degrees of injuries and now receiving treatment at the police clinic in the metropolis.
