FLASH| 11 Traders Detained Over Assassination Plot

by on May 2, 2016

Eleven traders perceived to be key opposition leaders of United Allied Spare Parts and Machine Deal­ers Association (UASPAM­DA), Trade Fair complex, Ojo, Lagos, have been quizzed over alleged assassination plot on the life of the interim chairman of the union.

The trad­ers who were also opposition leaders, described as freedom fighters by their supporters, were grilled for over 10 hours at the Zone 2 Police Com­mand, Onikan, Lagos.

Impeccable police source at Zone 2 said the opposition leaders were invited to the po­lice following a petition written by the incumbent chairman who alleged an uncovered plan to kill him and others by the suspects.


The traders who had the sup­port of numerous other mem­bers in the market were alleged to have stoutly challenged the alleged graft-infested and ir­responsive government of the present administration.


However, the grilling of the suspects took a dramatic twist as tens of hundreds of the trad­ers protested in front of the command to show solidarity to the traders.


The protesting traders who displayed several placards ac­cusing the incumbent admin­istration of corrupt and sharp practices chanted solidarity songs insisting not to vacate the place unless their leaders were released unconditionally.
