Police have assured that normalcy has returned in the Obalende area of Lagos following a clash between rival groups of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW).

Gunshots were fired on Thursday morning in the scuffle between the groups, raising tension in the area.

However, in a tweet, the Rapid Response Squad said policemen are now stationed in strategic points to maintain law and order.

“Just left Obalende, Situation very calm. Men of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS), Area A command, Onikan Area Command are all on ground. Everyone going about their normal duties,” an eyewitness, who craves anonymity, said.
