Kaduna state governor Nasir el-Rufai has declared the President of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) Aliyu Wabba (pictured above during Monday’s rally) wanted for what he called “economic sabotage”.
In a tweet on Tuesday, el-Rufai said Wabba and some leaders of the Organised Labour were wanted for “economic sabotage and attacks on public infrastructure”.
He went ahead to state that anyone who knows where Wabba is hiding should “send a message to @MOJKaduna (ministry of justice).” He also promised a reward for anyone who notifies Kaduna authorities of Wabba’s whereabouts.
Trouble began in Kaduna after NLC made good it’s threat to embark on a 5-day warning strike.
The strike which has crippled social and economic activities in Kaduna also witnessed a rally in the state capital led by the NLC leader.
The state had said Wabba will be arrested if he set foot in Kaduna noting that he is a fugitive of the law.
Electricity, airport and railway workers, plus state civil servants have all downed tools since Monday. They are protesting the government’s announcement of the sacking of over 20,000 workers.
