Oil workers to strike over dispute with Shell Driver arraigned for stabbing police officer

LAGOS — Following the seizure of  abandoned tankers and other articulated vehicles on the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway at the expiration of the 48-hour ultimatum, members of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, yesterday,  threatened to embark on strike.

Some of the aggrieved drivers who stormed the Lagos State Secretariat, Alausa Motor Park, where some of the impounded trucks were parked, vowed to bring the state to a standstill if the state government failed to release the impounded vehicles.

One of the drivers, who simply identified himself as Mr Sarumi, accused the state government of making the release of the tankers difficult by demanding tax clearance, which he said most drivers and owners of the tankers did not have.
