Abuja Federal High Court Stops NLC, TUC From Embarking On Strike
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have been prohibited by a federal high court in Abuja from going on strike on Wednesday as planned.
On Monday, Justice Olufunke Anuwe enjoined the NLC and all of its affiliates from proceeding with the planned June 7 strike until the main case is heard and decided.
The court also ordered service of the originating summons and motion on notice to the NLC on June 19, the date of the next adjourned hearing.
Following an ex parte application by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice to halt the planned strike, the court issued its orders.
Meanwhile Eluwanda Demilade, a man serving with Osun Amotekun, reportedly collapsed and died on his farmland.
On Saturday, the deceased, who served with the Amotekun Corps in the Ife-South local government area of Osun state, reportedly fell while working on his cocoa farm.
Alabi Adewole, a resident of Ile-Ife, disclosed that the deceased was discovered on his farm by farmers returning from the farm.
It was learned that the deceased’s family had transported his body to Ajidara in Ile-Ife for burial.
Kehinde Adeleke, a spokesman for the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in the state of Osun, stated that the deceased fell and slumped while working on the farm on Saturday.
