Some soldiers and police officers yesterday had a confrontation in Akure, the Ondo State capital.

The incident reportedly occurred at Ilesa Motor Park in the capital city.

The timely intervention of leaders of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) at the motor park led to an early resolution of their differences, which some residents said could have resulted in a serious bloodshed.

Drivers and passers-by converged on the area while the two groups exchanged altercations.

Sources said the confrontation followed the insistence of some soldiers to prevent police officers from arresting some suspects in the area.

Although the offence of the “suspects” could not be established last night, it was gathered the offence was not serious enough to warrant an arrest. (The Nation)
