Okorocha raising private militia says Imo State Labour Congress

The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has vowed to shut down Imo State over the sacking of workers in the state. This was contained in a communiqué released on Sunday, January 31, 2016 and signed by its president, Ayuba Wabba, and general secretary, Peter Ozo-Eson. The NLC accused Imo Governor, Rochas Okorocha of raising a private militia which he has armed with the purpose of attacking workers if they decide to stage an industrial action against his government.

“Governor Okorocha has raised a private militia which he has armed to the teeth and they are presently inflicting injuries on innocent workers,” the statement said.

“Congress considers this as illegal and resolved to make a report to the IGP, warning that in the event that Okorocha violates the law by unleashing the militia again on workers, that would be consequences.”
