All Nigeria Latest News report that the organised labour including the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and its Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, TUC, counterpart have given a November 8, strike notice to the Federal Government over Wednesday’s alleged attacks, abduction and battering of Joe Ajaero, the NLC President and others.

While addressing Journalists on Friday, the organised labour gave the Federal Government a six-point demand, including the immediate removal of the Commissioner of Police, Imo State and Area Commander, among other officials, for their alleged complicity in the brutalisation and humiliation of Comrade Ajaero and other workers.

All Nigeria Latest News reported that the suspected agents of the state and security operatives had allegedly 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.

Recall that 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.

The attack, brutalisation and battering of Ajaero have elicited outrage and condemnation across the country.

Leaders of NLC and TUC are billed to meet on Tuesday next week to decide on an appropriate response to the attack.
