Both unions said nationwide mobilisation of members and allies have begun immediately and the action by the Organised Labour followed the brutalisation of NLC National President, Joe Ajaero, last week in Imo State.

As 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.

Recalling that the Organised Labour last Friday handed the Federal Government a five-day ultimatum to replace the police commissioner, while also blaming Governor Hope Uzodimma who is seeking re-election for the attack on Ajaero though the governor had since said he had no hand in the attack on the labour leader.

While the Organised Labour 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.

Reacting to incident, the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, on Sunday, redeployed Barde for “neutrality sake” ahead of the November 11, 2023 governorship election in Imo State.
