“The clash happened at Ijesha. There has been a problem between members of the NURTW in Ijesha and Aguda, and the local government chairman shut down the park and there has not been an issue around there since then.
“But on Sunday, an Aguda boy entered the Ijesha area and a fight ensued between him and one other person and he was attacked and was injured. People thought he was dead, but he survived the attack and has been receiving treatment.

“The Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, invited the chairmen of the factions today (Monday) and other stakeholders were also invited for a meeting and resolutions were reached. All the unions affected equally undertake to maintain peace.”
