‘I Can Never Support Violence’ – Uzodimma Apologises Over Attack On NLC President, Ajaero

Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, has said the assault on the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Joe Ajaero, is regrettable and something he would never wish on anybody.
Recall how men who were allegedly Uzodinma loyalists brutalized Ajaero last week with the help of the Imo State Police command.
The Imo Police command, however, refuted the rumors, claiming that it took Ajaero in protective custody following intel of a planned mob attack on the union’s leader.
Speaking on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Thursday, Uzodimma insisted he would never condone violence and expressed regret for both the government and the attack on Ajaero.
In addition, the governor apologized to the NLC president and urged him to behave more civilly.
He said, “I was unaware that the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) president was in my state. What I did was that to condemn the action. I have never had disagreement with the labour union.”
“It has nothing to do with my government. Whether Joe Ajaero is the President of NLC or not, I will not wish this to happen to any human being. Of course I have to apologise because it happened in my state.
‘I am a Christian and believe in God. I can’t support violence. I can never support violence. Whatever happened to Joe Ajaero in my state which I am not aware of that led to him being assaulted must be regretted by both my government and myself.
“Going forward I will also like him to do thing in a more civilised manner. That was the point I was making. A man who is from my state to go on street without clearing me out; without bringing all the allegations before me.”
