One of the leaders of Tricycle Owners and Operators Association of Nigeria (TOOAN) in Lagos, Alhaji Azeez Abiola, and four suspects have been arrested by men of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the state police command.
The TOOAN leader and others were arrested In Agege on Thursday afternoon for attempting to cause mayhem in Agege against the warnings earlier given by the state government.
It was gathered that the security operatives took hold of them, while they were leading a team of supporters to the NURTW headquarters in Agege, an action which the authority believed would trigger violence and chaos in other parts of the metropolis.
Reports say that a pump action gun was recovered from them after the arrest.
