Police Disrupt NLC Protest In Borno


February 27, (THEWILL) – Operatives of the Borno State Police Command have prevented members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), in the State, from embarking on the nationwide protest against economic hardship in the country.

THEWILL reports that personnel of the Nigeria Police Force in their numbers mounted sentry some metres to the road leading to the NLC House at the old GRA Maiduguri, while the state’s Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Lawal Yusuf and other Unit Commanders, laid siege to the entrance of the Labour House, to ensuring that the workers do not join the nationwide protest.

Expressing frustration over the stand of the Police against the protest, the Chairman of the NLC in Borno State, Comrade Yusuf Inuwa, said unfortunately, until this Tuesday morning, “we have not concluded whether to embark on this peaceful rally, simply because we have been partnering with the security agents and the security agents are giving us difficult time to see how we can negotiate with them.”

Meanwhile, after arguments ensued between members of the Organised Labour and the leadership of the Union, who insisted that the protest must hold, the protest was taken to about 100 meters from the NLC House when Policemen halted them from moving further.
