Ogun transport union denies involvement in kidnap of ex- official

The Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria, RTEAN,
Ogun State Chapter, has denied being involved in the kidnap of
Olayinka Osinkoya.
Mr. Osinkoya is a former secretary of the association.
The victim was abducted last Tuesday while travelling from Ijebu-
Ode to Abeokuta to hold a meeting with the Chairman of Ogun
State Local Government Service Commission.
There have been rumours that the kidnap had to do with the
power tussle within RTEAN.
However, in a press statement made available to journalists on
Sunday, the association’s secretary, Tiwalade Akingbade, said
there was no crisis within the union.
He denied that the union was involved in Mr. Osinkoya’s kidnap.
“Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria, RTEAN, Ogun
State Branch, is not presently holding any election. Therefore,
Alhaji Olayinka Osinkoya could not be in contest with/against
anybody in the association,” he said.
“The kidnapping of Alhaji Olayinka Osinkoya was very
unfortunate. Members of our association have no hand in the
kidnapping of Alhaji Olayinka Osinkoya.”
