The leadership of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), and Trade Union Congress (TUC) disclosed this after an emergency meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.

The two major labour unions said nationwide mobilisation of members and allies has begun immediately.

The action by the labour unions followed the attack on the National President of NLC Joe Ajaero, last week in Imo State.

There had been widespread outrage by the Organised Labour accusing the Commissioner of Police in Imo State, Mohammed Barde, of complicity in the recent attack on Ajaero, in Owerri, the Imo State capital.

Last week Friday, the organised labour gave the Federal Government a five-day ultimatum to replace the police commissioner and accused the governor of the state, Hope Uzodimma of the attack on Ajaero.

Although, the governor denied involvement, and said he had no hand in the attack on the labour leader.

The labour unions also demanded the arrest and prosecution of some of the governor’s aides and threatened to embark on a nationwide industrial action if their demands were not carried out.

Acting on their demand, the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, on Sunday announced the redeployment of Barde for “neutrality’s sake” ahead of the November 11, 2023 governorship election in Imo State.
