The Lagos State Council of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) has distanced itself from an accused, Bolaniran Orimolade Aka Bola Bebo who is alleged to be infected with dreaded Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and has been going round raping and infecting unsuspecting individuals.
In a statement by the State Secretary of the union, Comrade Oluwaseyi Bankole, he stated that the suspect who is presently in police custody and said to be operating at Iyana Iba Motor Park is not a member of the union.
” The man is not a member of our union. As a matter of fact, our union does not operate at Iyana Iba Motor Park.
“The park in question is operated by another union. NURTW is made up of law abiding citizens, hence our members will not engage in criminal activities”
“We have a database of our registered members, from units to state and the national headquarters of union, and these members are known to be above board in all their dealings”, he stated.
Comrade Bankole appealed to journalists to always double check their stories before going to the press while also appealing that this clarification be widely published also.
