A statement signed by NURTW Mustapha Sego reads;
My Attention has been drawn to a piece of information in circulation to the effect that i was arrested yesterday by the Rapid Response Squad(RRS) In connection with the fracas that erupted at the Idumota area of lagos island and crippled commercial activities in the area.
For the records, I was only invited in for questioning at the Zone 2 police command Onikan.
As a stake holder on the Island, peace loving resident of the state and the State Treasurer of the NURTW, I expressed how i felt about the fracas to the police during interrogations and found Innocent of the accusations then left the Commannd around 10pm as the police continued their Investigations.
Am not in anyway a principal suspect as alleged or connected to any parties involved in the fracas, I have always maintained peace and harmony amongst the youth and residents of where i grew up on the island.
I stand by my words that anyone found culpable, and connected to the unrest caused by the fracas should be arrested and prosecuted according to the law.
I have been a law abiding citizen and have been contributing my quota to ensure peaceful coexistence amongst the youths in the state
