Ajaero: NLC, TUC Issue Fresh Strike Notice, Demands Immediate Removal Of Imo Commissioner Of Police, Others

A fresh notice of strike has been issued to the federal government by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC).
This is happening just after NLC President Joe Ajaero and other union members were attacked, kidnapped, and assaulted few days back.
Speaking at a press briefing on Friday (yesterday), the leaders of the TUC and NLC put out a six-point demand to the Federal Government.
This entails the immediate removal of the Imo State Commissioner of Police, the Area Commander, and additional authorities who are suspected of being complicit in the abuse and dehumanization of Comrade Ajaero and other employees.
The labour unions, thereby, issued November 8 as the new date for a nationwide strike should the government fail to meet its demands.
Some persons suspected to be agents of the state and security operatives had earlier descended on Ajaero alongside other Labour leaders, smashing their vehicles, inflicting injuries on them and dispossessing handsets, money, and ATM cards, among other valuables from the Labour leaders and others who had gathered at the NLC State secretariat to begin a scheduled protest over pending labour issues.
The NLC President, other national leaders of NLC and their Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, TUC, counterpart were at the state Secretariat in Owerri to protest, among other grievances, the backlog of unpaid salaries and allowances, pensions, gratuities, and non-compliance with the National Minimum Wage Act.
There has been outrage and condemnation of the attack, brutalisation, and battering of Ajaero. On Tuesday next week, the leaders of NLC and TUC will convene to determine the suitable course of action in response to this incident.
