A clash which occurred between operatives of the Jigawa Command of the Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC and members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, has resulted in the death of one innocent bystander..
Sources present during the commotion reported that the incident which happened in Dutse, the capital of Jigawa State, started after an FRSC operational van was set ablaze by NURTW hoodlums after the officials had impounded some of their vehicles for failure to install speed limiters.
An eye witness said;
“As soon as the Civil Defence officers arrived at the scene, they began beating everybody around.
One of them started shooting despite the fact that the police asked him not to. He shot dead of the bystanders and a police sergeant.”
