Commercial Motorcycle Riders Clash In Abeokuta, 25 Arrested

Two factions of the Amalgamated Commercial Motorcycle Riders Association Of Nigeria, ACOMORAN, have clashed at the premises of the federal high court in Abeokuta.

The crisis was said to have started when a former secretary of the association who is being investigated for alleged embezzlement, mobilized thugs from Ibadan and Igbo-ora areas of Oyo state to unleash terror on a faction led by the South West chairman of the association, Mr Samsondeen Apelogun on the premises of the court.

In the commotion that ensued, 25 members of the association were arrested by the Ogun state police command for disrupting public peace and order.

According to reports, the clash which could have resulted in a serious breakdown of law and order was averted by the combined men of the Nigeria Police, Department Of State Security, DSS, and men of the Nigerian Army.
