Peter Obi, the Labour Party Presidential candidate in the February 25 Presidential election, has condemned the Wednesday attack on the NLC President Joe Ajaero in Imo State.
What happened to the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Comrade Joe Ajaero, in Imo State, wednesday has come as a rude shock to most Nigerians. It says a lot about the state of affairs in our country today Obi said.
The former Governor of Anambra state described that the attack came as a huge shock to most Nigerians but that such is a reflection of the state of affairs in the country as of today.
Obi stated this on his official X (formerly Twitter) account. He said:
It shows the level of lawlessness, impunity, criminality, and rascality that have engulfed our dear country. 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.
On Wednesday, Ajaero was picked up from the Imo council secretariat of the NLC in Owerri by heavily armed police officers. While the organised labour accused police authorities of brutalising, and arresting Ajaero, the Imo State Police Command denied arresting the NLC President, saying he was saved from a mob attack.
