Armed Thugs Disrupt NLC Day 2 Protest In Kaduna
Aledeh News report that the Day Two protest of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on Tuesday in Kaduna has turned violent.
The protest which comes few hours after the State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai declared the Labour Leader, Ayuba Wabba and the union members wanted, has been disrupted.
The Union members had converged on the popular NEPA roundabout in the Kaduna capital city to continue their protest which started on Monday when armed thugs invaded the area and started throwing stones and other dangerous weapons at them.
The attack, therefore, forced many of the protesters to scamper for safety.
Although it is not known who sent the thugs, Wabba has pointed accusing fingers at the State Governor.
The NLC President amid the protest said he informed the DSS after he received earlier information of the plan to disrupt the protest.
Wabba said, “Today is a very sad moment in the history of democracy in Nigeria. Early in the morning today, we got credible information that El-Rufai has hired one Alhaji Hassan and some thugs to come and attack us.
“While we are here, they came but thank God we have chased them away because we have the number. We are not thugs and We Are Not Using Thugs we are Nigerian workers.”
The armed thugs were, however, dispersed by security operatives with teargas.
