Imo: Peter Obi fumes over attack on NLC President, Ajaero



Former Anambra State Governor Peter Obi has reacted to the attack on the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Comrade Joe Ajaero.


Recall that Ajaero, who was in Owerri, Imo State capital, on Wednesday to mobilize workers for a peaceful protest, was attacked by miscreants who hijacked the protest.


Although the police denied arresting and torturing the NLC president, Ajaero alleged that he was brutalized by security operatives.


Reacting, Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the recent election, said the attack was a rude shock to most Nigerians.


In a post on his official X handle on Thursday, Obi claimed that the incident was an indicator of how “lawlessness, impunity, criminality, and rascality have engulfed our dear country”.


He wrote, “What happened to the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Comrade Joe Ajaero, in Imo State, yesterday has come as a rude shock to most Nigerians. It says a lot about the state of affairs in our country today.


“Things like this should worry any discerning mind because it runs counter to the type of country that we all desire and deserve.


“In the New Nigeria of our dreams, abuse of power and the reckless violation of citizens’ rights through acts of impunity will have no place”.
