Shehu Sani, a former Kaduna Central Senator, says the strike action by the organized labour over the brutalization of Joe Ajaero, President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, is justifiable.
NLC and the Trade Union of Nigeria, TUC, had declared a nationwide strike to protest the event that unfolded in Owerri, the Imo State capital, last week, where suspected political thugs physically tortured the NLC president.
Benco news recalls that following NLC’s directive, unions in the aviation industry on Wednesday directed the withdrawal of all flights to Owerri from all airports across the country.
Speaking through his official X handle, Sani supported the decision of the organized labour, saying the strike action would send clear messages to those behind the attack on Ajaero.
The post reads, “No responsible trade union will fold its arms and see its leaders brutalized without a massive response. The strike will send a clear message to those who want to toe this path.
“Using political thugs to disrupt protests and maltreat protesters is unacceptable; Abuja EndSARS organizers can remember how they were attacked at CBN Headquarters”
