Photos: Police allegedly stood aside while thugs attacked protesting workers in Ogun State

According to Emmanuel Ojo, who posted the photos Thursday:

“This is to inform the general public that our members had been attacked, wounded and robbed by some thugs while the Nigeria Police Force who are fully armed were looking and watching the film, mobile phones were snatched, while our members with various degree of wounds had been hospitalised.” – OGUN NLC

Wednesday, Ogun State Governor Amosun, described aggrieved workers as brainless and senseless, because they decided to embark on strike to demand immediate payment of outstanding 12 months unions’ check-off dues, outright stoppage of the Contributory Pension Deductions, payment of 12 months of global deductions which include (bank loans repayment, co-operatives savings, Ileya/festivals savings and gradual payment of retiree gratuity) among other legitimate demands.
