Imo citizens are in danger; Uzodinma is a terr orist – NLC raises alarm
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has raised an alarm that citizens of Imo State are in danger, labelling Governor Hope Uzodinma as a terrorist.
In a post captioned “IMO STATE CITIZENS ARE IN DANGER,THE CHIEF SECURITY OFFICER IS NOW A TERRORIST ” via its official X handle on Saturday, the labour union said that the attack on its President, Joe Ajaero, was not just an attack on his personality but on the legal rights of the citizens of Imo State.
“The Attack on the NLC President is not just an attack on his personality but an attack on the legal rights of a citizen by a governor who was meant to secure the citizen,” the post read.
Recalls that Ajaero was reportedly abducted and brutalized on Wednesday by men of the Imo State Police Command.
The NLC President was rushed to the hospital as a result of the beating.
The police, however, denied claims that it brutalized Ajaero, claiming that it took the labor union leader into preventive custody following reports of planned mob action against him.
However, in protest of the ill-treatment meted against its national leader, the union announced its decision to embark on an industrial action, demanding the immediate removal and demotion of the Imo State Commissioner of Police.
