Who Ordered The Attack? – NLC President, Ajaero Speaks On Imo Attack

The President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Joe Ajaero, has addressed the issue of who ordered an attack on him in Imo State.

Recall that Ajaero was attacked in Owerri, Imo State capital while preparing for a protest in the state.

Speaking in an interview with Vanguard, Ajaero said President Bola Tinubu was not involved in his attack.

Ajaero, however, insisted that the Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma was involved in the attack on him in the state capital.

He said, “Even if it was an order from Abuja, it was Uzodimma who carried it out. Mr President couldn’t do this. The day we had a rally in Abuja, he sent for us. I was still wearing the clothes I wore to the rally when we went to see him. We articulated all the issues that led to the protest. The other time we gave notice for action, he came with a nationwide broadcast and offered N25,000, and we said no. He conceded to N35,000, conceded to not just making it for six months, conceded to not giving it only to the least paid worker. You can see that the President is open to negotiations.

“He did not say go and beat them up. Up till yesterday when Uzodimma was declared or appointed by INEC for a second term, he has been giving reasons why Joe Ajaero must be killed. Even after the apology that is on the internet, he keeps talking about why Joe Ajaero should not come to Imo State.”
