The National Union of Textile Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria (NUTGTWN) and Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) have condemned the arrest and brutalisation of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) President, Joe Ajaero, in Imo State.


President of NUTGTWN, John Adaji, sez the mayhem was unleashed on the workers and the NLC president while on “peaceful protest against the violation of the rights of Imo workers by the state government.


In a statement on Thursday Secretary General of Nigeria Union of Railway Workers (NUR) Segun Esan condemned the dastardly act, noting that the gathering by the workers to peacefully protest against acts of injustice is a legitimate right that does not contravene any known law.


Furthermore, the National Publicity Secretary of the the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) Abdullahi Yalwa, in a statement, on thursday expressed shock at reports of attacks on unarmed workers and the NLC leadership in Imo.
