The spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, Adekunle Ajisebutu, confirmed the development.

He, however, said policemen had been deployed in the affected areas.

Ajisebutu said, “It was a brewing conflict over ticketing that would have led to a violent confrontation/crisis between two factions of NURTW in Kola bus stop and its environs.

“Police patrol teams from Alakuko, Agbado, Ijaiye-Ojokoro, and reinforcements from the headquarters have been deployed to the area on the order of the Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi.
“The place is calm. No threat to lives and property currently, as the police are still maintaining their presence in the area.”
